Last month, Bruce Schneier commented on The Encryption Working Group of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s  has 2017 Annual Report. He says they conclude that, strong encryption is in the (US) national interest, the supply of encryption tools is globally liquid (hmm!), there is no one size fits all answer to law enforcement’s need to snoop, or whatever they call it, and that co-operation between law enforcement and the tech. sector should be fostered.

    E-Commerce can’t work without trust worthy encryption, it’s in everyone’s interests, UK politicians should take notice. I think it can be said that while US companies dominate the supply of encryption products, for any country other than the US, poorly regulated products can be avoided. The latter two points I am less sure about particularly since the law enforcement agenda is clear and in opposition to citizens’ privacy.
