US Department of Justice touts "responsible encryption"

"Warrant-proof encryption defeats the constitutional balance by elevating privacy above public safety," Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a speech at the US Naval Academy today. "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."

Essentially it appears the idea floated is to have companies hold keys to customer's encryption. Follow the massive Equifax data breach, not to mention other government breaches, I don't see any reason citizens should have confidence in such a mandated solution.
