  • Notes from the Electronic Cottage 12/17/15

    Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

    In the wake of the horrendous recent shootings in Paris and California, US politicians are once again calling for a ban on encryption that the government can’t decrypt. This is a call shared by politicians and governments in China and Vietnam and Azerbaijan as well as those in the UK and some European countries. It is not, however, shared by scientists and security experts who understand how encryption actually works, including most of those who have invented many of the security systems in use on the Internet today. Why not? The reason is simple: providing “golden keys” so that governments could open all communications would simply make the Internet – and the world – less secure and more dangerous.
