The Cybersecurity 202: Justice Department to mount another encryption push despite setbacks

"The encryption push may be harder now that the public knows about law enforcement's errors. “DOJ has had years to 'collect accurate metrics' on encryption's impact on investigations on prosecutions, but the only number it has ever provided to the public is the one the DOJ had to admit was inaccurate,” said Riana Pfefferkorn, cryptography fellow at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society. “If they're serious about this, they should release those metrics once they have them, plus info about how they arrived at those numbers.”"
