🇩🇪EU-Kommission plant keine "generelle Schwächung, direkte oder indirekte Verschlüsselungsverbote für alle Bürger wie z.B. durch Einbau von Hintertüren", so die Antwort auf eine Anfrage besorgter Abgeordneter. #RechtaufVerschlüsselung

🇬🇧#SaveEncryption: EU Commission tells concerned MEPs it is not planning to "generally weaken, directly or indirectly ban for all citizens, such as through the introduction of 'back doors'", #encryption.

@mmu_man @echo_pbreyer The whole point of that letter seems to just be the same daft idea: that we can create some kind of magical "lawful access" to E2EE that doesn't result in an effective backdoor.

@mmu_man @echo_pbreyer Yea, I mean if the commission think they can create a mathematical algorithm that can deduce the intentions of the person using it, then that's a breakthrough that's much bigger than magic backdoors, it would change everything. Come on Commish, publish your research, earn that Field's Medal

@seachaint @echo_pbreyer or maybe that's what quantum encryption is about: it's both encrypted and not 😛

@mmu_man @echo_pbreyer I thought that was just Google/WhatsApp's backup system
