Apple And Other Tech Companies Condemning Backdoor Access: This week, Reform Government Surveillance, which includes several major technology companies, such as Apple, Google, and Facebook jointly launched a statement condemning the recent proposal for backdoor access to electronic devices and reaffirming its commitment to strong encryption.
Reform Government Surveillance recently announced a new core principle on encryption that will guide our advocacy efforts, and we continue to believe that strong encryption helps protect the security and privacy of individuals and companies around the world. We have consistently raised concerns about proposals that would undermine encryption of devices and services by requiring so-called "exceptional access" for law enforcement. Recent reports have described new proposals to engineer vulnerabilities into devices and services - but they appear to suffer from the same technical and design concerns that security researchers have identified for years. Weakening the security and privacy that encryption helps provide is not the answer.
