The Encryption Working Group of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee has released its annual report.
Observation #1: Any measure that weakens encryption works against the national interest.
Observation #2: Encryption technology is a global technology that is widely and increasingly available around the world.
Observation #3: The variety of stakeholders, technologies, and other factors create different and divergent challenges with respect to encryption and the “going dark” phenomenon, and therefore there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the encryption challenge.
Observation #4: Congress should foster cooperation between the law enforcement community and technology companies.
