+ - US Pres. Wants Broader Internet Wiretap Authority->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The White House plans to deliver a bill to Congress next year that will require internet based communication services that use encryption to be capable of decrypting messages to comply with federal wiretap orders. The bill will go beyond CALEA to apply to services such as Blackberry email. Even though RIM has stated that it does not currently have an ability to decrypt messages via a master key or back door, the bill may require them to. Regarding this development, James Dempsey of the Center for Democracy and Technology commented on the proposal saying, "They basically want to turn back the clock and make Internet services function the way that the telephone system used to function.""
