25 Groups Object to Graham-Blumenthal Anti-Encryption EARNIT Act


25 civil society groups, led by the Open Technology Institute at New America and including Media Alliance, sent a letter objecting to the EARNIT Act, which seeks to weaken encryption standards.

The letter states: “By setting the stage for adoption of best practices that, whether directly or indirectly, require companies to avoid offering strong device encryption or end-to-end encrypted messaging services, the bill could create encryption backdoors. Backdoors to encryption make everyone in society more vulnerable to privacy, cybersecurity, and other risks.”
