Re: Explanations? Don't hold your breath.

@Claptrap314, you are forgetting that one of the Five Eyes is itself in Europe. And also that every country's intelligence agency wants to make things easier for themself to peek at communications, even their friends and neighbours, "just in case". I'd be more surprised if they weren't making "suggestions", either directly or indirectly, on how the encryption standard should work.
