Fine, OK, no backdoors, says Deputy AG. Just keep PLAINTEXT copies of everyone's messages


Re: One good thing

"Did he just say that it is fine to lock the front door as long as you leave all the windows open?"

No, what he's really saying is the locksmith must hand over copies of all keys made with annotations as to the location of each lock.

That is my biggest gripe in all of this. Law enforcement really wants to circumvent due process by serving warrants on the manufacturers and service providers instead of the target of their investigations. Data stored on my device (encrypted or not) is mine and any attempt to access it should come through me!
