Home Sec Amber Rudd: Yeah, I don't understand encryption. So what?

Ian Reissmann

In one sense Rudd is right. She does not need to understand cryptography.

What she does need is to listen to the advice of security experts who will explain to her what is feasible and what is not.

If she has an expert advising her who claims PKI can be weakened or outlawed, let Rudd put him/her forward to explain how this would work.

No. I thought not.
