Lack of imagination?

There’s backdoors that are wide open, and backdoors that are actually pretty difficult for a third party to open. I wonder if it would be possible to arrive at a position where we’re content that it’s good enough? We’ve managed that with credit card chips, SIMs. The effort / reward ratio is just not worth it.

Though of course the flaw is, who gets to know what the back door is?
