In this episode, I’m tackling the current state of end-to-end encryption. Specifically, I’m diving into how the US Government is trying to get a backdoor into end-to-end encryption via various bills, including the recently introduced EARN-IT Act. And while most commentators and analysts believe that EARN-IT doesn’t specifically address end-to-end encryption, I firmly believe that Section 230 will be used as a lever to get people to introduce weakened encryption to comply with these provisions to continue to be a safe harbor.
As always, please feel free to leave a comment on the video if you agree or even if you disagree. The only way we can truly understand the best course of action is to debate and discuss. Just make sure you keep it civil!
