Encryption Advocates Say DOJ Can Probe Without Weakening Security

DOJ can investigate without weakening end-to-end encryption for messaging apps, representatives from BSA | The Software Alliance and Internet Society said in interviews, after Telegram told us the messaging app is under FBI investigation.
Major tech companies like Apple are acting in good faith and complying with law enforcement orders when necessary, said Ross. “They’re not trying to play games.” Encryption lets Apple provide better products, he said. The expert cited an FCC subgroup's report showing such security measures deter crime. In the six months after Apple introduced “activation lock” in 2013, iPhone theft declined by 38% in San Francisco and 19% in New York, said the Technological Advisory Council's subgroup. Police and industry need to explore solutions that protect both business and law enforcement interests, Ross said.
