Computer Weekly is one of a number of publications to highlight a leaked EU document which proposes that law enforcement agencies should be able to access digital data for ‘legitimate, clearly defined purposes’. The resolution states that, while the EU continues to support strong encryption, ‘the principle of security through encryption and security despite encryption must be upheld in its entirety.’ The document is due to be presented to a European Council Working group, followed by the Council of Permanent Representatives later in November. If accepted, the proposal will result in the eventual removal of end-to-end encryption on platforms like WhatsApp and Signal, says the news site.
