Government and Encryption: Who's Next?
« on: March 15, 2016, 08:41:11 pm »
WhatsApp appears to be the next target in the government's fight to
access encrypted information. The messaging service has told a court it
is unable to comply with a law enforcement wiretap warrant because it
does not hold the keys to the encrypted data in question.
