Re: So where is the antidote ?

True end-to-end encryption is physically impossible without brains that can directly grok encrypted data. Anything else opens up the possibility of an Outside the Envelope Attack, where the data is obtained at the point where it MUST be decrypted so as to be typed by the Hand v1.0 or read by the Eyeball Mk I. Sadly, we're not at Ghost in the Shell levels of capability yet.
