President Obama’s cybersecurity proposal will seem rudimentary to some but ultimately is a step in the right direction, says Jay P. Kesan, the H. Ross and Helen Workman Research Scholar at the University of Illinois College of Law and an expert in the intersection of technology and law. About law enforcement's push back on Apple and Google creating end-to-end encription, he says:
"Law enforcement agents want a backdoor to ensure that the company can always decrypt customer information just in case. But it’s simply not technologically reasonable to ask a company to build their product with a security flaw that only the good guys – and not the bad guys – will be able to use. That’s not how doors and locks work."
