Making Non-compliant Encryption Illegal

I'm still not seeing the discussion about how they plan to keep people from using encryption that doesn't have back doors. Surely, they'll be illegal, but there are enforcement problems with that, and only criminals will have strong encryption. How much work is it going to be to force everyone to hand over keys; or rather, hunt down those who don't voluntarily hand them over?

And, what will this do to students who want to write their own encryption algorithms, even weak ones (as if students and researchers matter)?
