Cory Doctorow – David Cameron’s encryption ban would endanger every Briton and destroy the IT industry

Cory Doctorow the well known technology blogger, journalist and Science fiction author, has written a detailed review highlighting the huge technical challenges David Cameron’s recently proposed plan to ban encryption would face.

Questioning if David Cameron understands the technology, Doctorow points out that for Cameron’s plan will require a huge series of restrictions on companies, individuals, open source software and the internet to be effective, because anything less would have no material effect on the ability of criminals to carry on secret conversations.

If implemented, electronic communications of British citizen’s and industry will be open to foreign spies and criminals.
