Washington — In a letter to President Obama, the Computer & Communications Industry Association said so-called encryption backdoors would create security risks, economic problems for tech sector, and privacy concerns for citizens and international allies. The letter was sent as both the Administration and Congress consider policy proposals to address the growing availability of strong encryption in consumer devices and services.

CCIA President & CEO Ed Black noted that, unfortunately, there is no technical compromise on the horizon that would satisfy all stakeholders: “Regardless of good intentions, any efforts to undermine the security and effectiveness of strong encryption are misguided, shortsighted, impractical, and ultimately counterproductive.”
