FBI Wants 'Adult Conversation' On Device Encryption

The director of the FBI says he wants to have an adult conversation on encryption next year. I have an idea, why doesn't the FBI build a team of people that can stay one step ahead of the crooks, instead of relying on companies to provide them an "easy" button. frown

FBI Director James Comey warned again Tuesday about the bureau's inability to access digital devices because of encryption and said investigators were collecting information about the challenge in preparation for an "adult conversation" next year. "We are working hard to make people at keyboards feel our breath on their necks and try to change that behavior," he said. "We've got to get to a point where we can reach them as easily as they can reach us and change behavior by that reach-out."
