The FBI claims to be all for Privacy so the don't really want a backdoor only a built in ...mechanism that enables them to access the data if the court so orders.
The FBI boss James Comey said this in a Senate hearing recently:
He also supported what appears to be a fresh push by Senator Dianne Feinstein to introduce legislation to enable courts to order access to encrypted devices.
The good thing is that James Comey wants the same thing as us and is all for privacy and he is confident about convincing the private sector :
“We’ve had very good open and productive conversations with the private sector over the last 18 months about this issue, because everybody realizes we care about the same things. We all love privacy, we all care about public safety and none of us want backdoors — we don’t want access to devices built in in some way. What we want to work with the manufacturers on is to figure out how can we accommodate both interests in a sensible way,” said Comey in response to a question from Senator Hatch about the security risks of backdoors being built in to enable access to encrypted data.
So...according to this Newspeak what will we call Back-doors now?
Can someone name the "private sector" that understands him so well ..so that I can run away?
It seems to only apply for American products:
How can we optimize the privacy, security features of their devices and allow court orders to be complied with. We’re having some good conversations — I don’t know where they’re going to end up, frankly. I could imagine a world that ends up with legislation saying that if you’re going to make devices in the U.S. you figure out how to comply with court orders. Or maybe we don’t go there. But we are having productive conversations right now I think.
James Corny might be all for privacy but he sure has trouble defining it.
Open source just became all important!
