Encryption clash: Executive branch, Congress vs. tech, civil liberties groups

Politico

The industry organizations: The Computer & Communications Industry Association, Consumer Technology Association, Internet Association, Internet Infrastructure Coalition and NetChoice signed a joint letter to bill sponsors Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), the Judiciary chairman, and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) emphasizing the encryption risks.

“Strong encryption is critical for national security, a vibrant and competitive digital economy, and the online and physical safety of individuals, including children,” the organizations wrote. “Creating a false choice between encryption and intermediary protections would exacerbate threats to these technology users, placing those most vulnerable Americans at greatest risk.”
