So many mixed feelings, but look forward to reading this blog post.
Yea! Bruce Schneier, my man! I’m an anarchist, but I do see the merit of government mandating strong encryption.
Here is the thing though, theoretically I could see someone arguing how bad guys would have strong cryptography. But consider that, for every bad person being aided by strong cryptography, there is also a victim of that bad guy that needs strong cryptography just as much for a kind of “internet refuge” status.
To me putting backdoors in cryptography makes no sense.
