Politicians Exploit Child Sex Abuse To Target Encryption

Politicians Exploit Child Sex Abuse To Target Encryption

From the United States to the United Kingdom, politicians are using the issue of child sex abuse as a pretext to undermine the security of end-to-end encryption. 

Al Jazeera reports on Tuesday that law enforcement agencies argue that encryption hampers their efforts to combat child exploitation.

However, cybersecurity experts caution that compromising encryption would have far-reaching consequences for users worldwide.

Also, in Asia, human rights groups and privacy advocates express deep concern over the Western-led campaign against encrypted communications.

These advocates fear that undermining encryption could jeopardize the privacy of millions of individuals living under oppressive regimes.

Governments such as Thailand and Hong Kong have exploited encryption debates to further suppress dissent and restrict freedom of speech.
