So some particularly sneaky senators have decided that the thing that they need to focus on in the midst of a global pandemic, record unemployment, and racial injustice is, wait for it, encryption. This is yet another attempt by congress to force technology companies to provide a backdoor to encryption. We should actually say what it really is, it outlaws end-to-end encryption. The governments persistent attempts to outlaw end-to-end encryption are concerning, and the timing of this underhanded attempt is sinister. Please watch this and make sure it doesn’t get anywhere near passage. Also see Daring Fireball’s link on this.
