In the same breath he says we have to have a dialog about the consequences of what he is requesting tech companies I do he blatantly refuses to answer the very important issue that the yahoo CISO asked... If you force companies to have back doors to their clients encrypted data how are you going to stop governments from other companies from forcing them to use them as well?
Not to mention the blatant refusal to accept the reality that if you weaken crypto to put everyone in increased risk. He nows this... Like he said... They have some of the best crypto security experts on their payroll. They know perfectly well that if you introduce a backdoor into a crypto algorithm to allow a backdoor that can decrypt communication then the maths that created the crypto key is fundamental flawed and if this is the case you are not creating only a backdoor you can access but introducing a weakness into the system that anyone can potentialy break given enough resources and know-how. You are fundamental putting everyone at risk... All our communications all of our bank transactions and purchases... Everything that depends on strong crypto.
