Privacy groups call on Obama to reject anti-encryption legislation
This morning OpenMedia joined 36 other NGOs, academics, and companies in sending a letter to President Obama on encryption. The letter calls on the President “to respectfully request that the White House specifically oppose legislation to undermine security and reiterate the need for a broad statement of support for encryption from the administration.” It has been 167 days since a pro-encryption petition at SaveCrypto.org surpassed 100,000 signatures, and there has still been no substantive response from the president. Encryption is a critical tool for protecting our privacy and security online, and cannot afford to be compromised. Read the full letter below.
