White House mulls just banning strong end-to-end crypto. Plus: More bad stuff in infosec land

Depends. Do you mean that contract drawn up hundreds of years ago by a bunch of white slave owners or do you mean what the majority of the Enlightened Nine grace the rest of us with?

If the former, then h*** no. They were a bunch of ready revolutionaries, and the Jefferson cypher is STILL a really good device, if handled properly.

If the latter, then yeah. Between upholding the ITAR (in which the government can pretty much ban civilian access munitions if it can cross the border) and ACA (in which the government can force you to purchase a product that you do not want), we're done.
