Ok so the government's that want the big companies to do this well that is fine... for the tech enlightened populace

At the end of the day as technical people we will find / develop our own such as bcrypt / scrypt for hashing etc.

Trucrypt / veracrypt these are all things that are developed by people not companies.... now I remember the issues with trucrypt and the worries that it was backdoored

My point is even if they do get these access protocols the enemy (take that as you will) will just moved to one without a backdoor
