White House won’t support encryption unlocking legislation

White House won’t support legislation to force device makers to help police unlock encrypted devices, report says. Two members of the Senate Intelligence Committee have proposed the legislation. The issue has been simmering since late 2014, when the FBI asked Apple to unlock an iPhone in California. The White House and the FBI are divided on the issue, but the White House has offered to stay out of a debate. The proposal would reportedly allow federal judges to order tech companies to help law enforcement agencies with unlocking encrypted devices.
