Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein Delivers Remarks on Encryption at the United States Naval Academy
tl;dr he wants tech companies to weaken encryption, new jargon "Responsible encryption"
some nice nuggets:
>Warrant-proof encryption defeats the constitutional balance by elevating privacy above public safety >Encrypted communications that cannot be intercepted and locked devices that cannot be opened are law-free zones that permit criminals and terrorists to operate without detection by police and without accountability by judges and juries. >If companies are permitted to create law-free zones for their customers, citizens should understand the consequences, >When police cannot access evidence, crime cannot be solved. Criminals cannot be stopped and punished.
And yes, Trump appointed RFR, Senate confirmed April.
