Will end-to-end encryption become ubiquitous across applications and services and allow criminals to hide from law enforcement? Not likely, says Harvard.
Berkman in the News
There’s no need to panic about strong encryption, argue experts from the university.
The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University on Monday released a report that questions the so-called “going dark” phenomenon.
A new study says that Federal agencies don’t necessarily need computer backdoors to spy on their targets. Instead, Internet-connected devices could offer them an array of options to trace suspects.
Encrypted communication is making law enforcement and counterterrorism investigations more difficult, but fears of “going dark” are overblown, a study said.
Law-enforcement officials say they’re running out of ways to spy on criminals and terrorists. Maybe they’re not looking in the right places.
