Trump administration considering a ban on end to end cryptography.

Fediverse, let's recycle the old and tired horseshit we hear every time a gun ban is so much as mentioned. Ready? I'll start.

FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS.

IF YOU WANT TO TAKE MY CRYPTO, YOU BETTER COME ARMED AND SEND BACHELORS

IF YOU OUTLAW CRYPTOGRAPHY ONLY CRIMINALS WILL HAVE IT

@r000t all valid, how can we protect dissident speech with out guns and crypto, government can go full crack down on a whim. Guns are for killing corrupt politicians, crypto is for exposing corrupt politicians.

@r000t I suspect this has a real chance of passing in the US and in other parts of the world. This is one of those few issues that seems to have bi-partisan support in the US.

Banning PGP didn't fucking work.

@jerry
But seriously, how the hell do they plan on enforcing it, especially with that pesky Tim Apple running around, extolling the benefits of privacy?

@r000t I think it's a disastrous policy that will, at best, be selectively enforced. Enforcement, pretty clearly, will be levied at technology providers - Tim Apple, Sergey Google, et al.

@r000t right - we didn't want the baddies outside the US to "go dark". Now the baddies are, well... you get the picture.

WHEN SOMEONE USES CRYPTOGRAPHY, YOU ALL NEED TO USE BIGGER AND BETTER CRYPTOGRAPHY

@SaniTea
government be all "nobody needs more than 1024-bit RSA"

FUCK YOU, I NEED 4096-BIT RSA TO PROTECT MY FAMILY FROM THE NEIGHBOR KID
