Security chatter is at its highest in the United States, but also in the United Kingdom take the hole on the subject with threats of bans
The incumbent Prime minister of the United Kingdom is David Cameron, and as part of his campaign for a re-election to the post he will like in the United States have access to encrypted content-otherwise he will go in favour of a ban on encryption.
Cameron says that if he wins the British elections in may, so he will have British access to messaging apps, otherwise he will ban them.
“We will allow a way to communicate, which simply cannot be read? My answer to that question is: ‘no, we won’t’. ”
Many apps like WhatsApp and Snap chat user encryptions, and they may therefore ultimately be banned in the United Kingdom. The same applies to iMessage and Apple’s FaceTime.
Both Apple and Google have enabled encryption as standard on devices running the two giants latest version of operating systems iOS 8 and Android respectively-3.1.
The encryption debate has filled much of the United States, where the FBI has said that, among other things, the encryption can lead to a child’s death. The reasons for the strong rhetoric is that if the authorities cannot access the units in spite of a legal ruling, important information may be lost, which could have clarified matters relating to, for example, the abduction of children.
In the United Kingdom if it ends up being a ban on encrypted kommunikationsapps is, for good reason, not safe. First, Cameron win election in may, and then he must have a majority in favour of the proposal.
