Tech to Obama: Don’t let the FBI weaken phone encryption

Tech to Obama: Don’t let the FBI weaken phone encryption.
Some of the world’s largest tech companies are planning to send a letter to President Obama today, asking him to reject any proposal to weaken the security of their products so that law enforcement can better view encrypted data.

“Whether you call them ‘front doors’ or ‘back doors’, introducing intentional vulnerabilities into secure products for the government’s use will make those products less secure against other attackers,” reads the letter, signed by 48 tech companies, including Apple, Facebook, Cisco Systems and Dropbox.”
