Everyone wants to encourage encryption, except for one minister
The Department of Justice and Security in the Netherlands seems to be holding on to the idea that it is possible to weaken encryption "just a little". Simultaneously, the parliament and a monster alliance of organizations tells the minister over and over again: it's impossible. EDRi's member Bits of Freedom sheds some light on the on-going debate on the question.
If the minister forces companies to build in a back door, criminals will sooner or later use it.
But you can’t weaken encryption “just a little”, just like you can’t be pregnant “just a little”.
