EFF Comments on the New Crypto War

Worth reading, an End of 2019 Post from EFF on the new Backdoor Battle:

Fancy New Terms, Same Old Backdoors: The Encryption Debate in 2019
BY JOE MULLINDECEMBER 26, 2019

 

I am glad the author is not too convinced by ZuckerFace's decree of end-to-end encryption for FB products. I don't trust them not to hold their own keys to the traffic.

Re: EFF Comments on the New Crypto War

@CraginSThis argument is going to go on for aeons, just add Google and Alibaba to the mix along with IoT it is going to be a very messy 2020.

Re: EFF Comments on the New Crypto War

So does end-to-end encryption for FB  products (or any product) mean that even they wouldn't be able to inspect their own product? Seems bad not to be able to inspect your own software, so I am guessing they mean once the product leaves their hands, but they still retain the right to inspect anything on their equipment, which means by default that they would have some sort of backdoor or access to the encryption keys anyways.
