As more and more data comes to be a visible evidence of the government eavesdropping, the business to discuss is to be second-guessed in November this year.
Ron Wyden, a senator which opposed giving the governmental intelligence agencies accessing encrypted consumer data, has passed an opinion on data privacy and security. It is known that democratic senator from Oregon has made a stand for tech companies security policy.
It has become clear from the New York Times interview with the senator that encryption weakening is being wanted by some of the government members. Americas’ browsing histories are desired to be obtained by the FBI. After the session is renewed in November this year, the issues are to be discussed again.
The senator is known to do everything possible in order to prevent anti-encryption bill, which has been proposed by some senators in May. The law is considered by Ron Wyden as jeopardizing citizen liberties and every procedural tool is proclaimed to be used by the senator to prevent it from being imposed.
The Oregon senator also has stated that for being in a safe community an encryption weakening shouldn’t be allowed. Browser spying is known to come next for further consideration of the issue. According to the senator’s words, a political organization or mental health clinic visiting by a person should come with a court oversight but not spying.
Also, Rule 41 has been explained by the senator as a possibility of the government to have multiple devices hacked in a single warrant from a single judge. Millions of innocent American users have undergone spying on them, which hasn’t led to cybercriminals investigating and the approach is considered to be unsafe for average customer by Ron Wyden. In addition, the debates between Internet companies and governmental agencies seem to be long by the interviewed.
Such as there were, November is to show us at least some result of the issue.
