FBI chief urges 'robust debate' on encryption

Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey addresses the American Law Institute's annual meeting in Washington, DC on May 19, 2015FBI Director James Comey called Monday for public debate on the use of encrypted communications, saying Americans may not realize how radical groups and criminals are using the technology. Comey’s comments in a blog post appeared to seek more public support for his view, first expressed last year, that stronger encryption being developed for mobile devices could hurt the efforts of US law enforcement and intelligence operations. While the FBI chief’s comments sparked criticism in the tech community and among civil liberties activists, Comey said Americans may not realize how Islamic State militants use encryption to avoid detection.
