Ever since becoming the FBI director, Christopher Wray has expressed concern about the challenges encryption has posed for law enforcement.

On Tuesday, at the RSA Conference in San Francisco,  he said the problem is “getting worse and worse,” according to the website Gizmodo, which reports:

 It’s a common refrain for government officials over the last half-decade, but it’s been a matter of sharp debate especially since the FBI overstated encryption device numbers last year.

“It can’t be a sustainable end state for there to be an entirely unfettered space that’s utterly beyond law enforcement for criminals to hide,” Wray said. “We have to figure out a way to deal with this problem.”

Wray went on to say “I’m hearing increasingly that there are solutions.” But he declined to get more specific.
