FBI Wants to Ban Cell Phone Encryption; Congress Shows Cluelessness

If the FBI had its way, security encryption would be outlawed on cell phones.

FBI Director James Comey is lobbying Congress to create a law that would require tech companies to “create a backdoor into any communications device that uses encryption,” Gizmodo reports.

Only trouble is, many Congressional members don’t know the first thing about encryption, Gizmodo wrote.

I don’t know anything about this stuff,” Rep. John Carter, chairman of the subcommittee on Homeland Security, said.

“There you have it—a man in charge of doling out billions of dollars of cybersecurity money openly admits that he knows nothing about cybersecurity. The scene would be hilarious if its implications weren’t so disturbing,” Gizmodo wrote.
