    If I understand the situation correctly it’s already a crime in the UK to refuse to hand over your crypto keys or passwords when told to do so by the police. It’s basically a question if you have the right to keep secrets.

    Cryptography with backdoors, no matter who holds the keys, is pointless. Not that such an arrangement would be revolutionary. *cough*nsa_key*cough* Cool
