Submission + - Requiring backdoors to enable surveillance on all sorts of systems (techdirt.com)

Presto Vivace writes: "How The FBI's Desire To Wiretap Every New Technology Makes Us Less Safe

But they're forgetting something: the FBI isn't necessarily the only one who will get access to those backdoors. In fact, by requiring backdoors to enable surveillance on all sorts of systems, the FBI is almost guaranteeing that the bad guys will use those backdoors for their own nefarious purposes. It's not security, it's anti-security.

I often think that lack of privacy is itself a security vultnerability."
