Encryption, April 24, 1998
- Should current U.S. export laws be eased to allow American companies to sell stronger encryption, or data-scrambling, software overseas?
- Should U.S. computer users be required to deposit the keys to their
encryption programs with third parties so that American law
enforcement officials can unscramble electronic messages when they
suspect criminal activity?
- What are the policy considerations in support of and in opposition to
the Security and Freedom Through Encryption Act (H.R. 695) and the
Secure Public Networks Act (S. 909)?
