ENISA published an opinion paper on encryption

22 December 2016

ENISA has published an Opinion Paper to safeguard encryption. The agency argues that encryption has been weakened to facilitate law enforcement by the last European legislation to create the Single Digital Market but this also means a lowering trust in online services.

ENISA collaborates closely with Europol to develop working group of experts on the topic, to discuss technical options to meet the needs of law enforcement while advocating the need to maintain strong encryption.
