US Govt demand master encryption keys

Just about two months ago, our Don's powerful and advanced US Government admitted wiretapping non-Americans. (Something called Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.) The excuse provided by Obama Government is to protect Americans. To Americans, the excuse (or the end) probably justifies the means.

Everybody with a bit of computing technology knows that wiretapping is not very useful when the information is encrypted. According to this Cnet report, our Don's powerful U.S. Government want the master encryption keys, so they can decrypt and read all the captured traffic. Of course, big companies denied.

Top secret NSA documents leaked by former government contractor Edward Snowden suggest an additional reason to ask for master encryption keys: they can aid bulk surveillance conducted through the spy agency's fiber taps.

The Cnet article also described a number of tactics our Don's US Government attempted to obtain encryption keys.
