US voices frustration with ’warrant-proof’ encryption – BBC News

The US deputy attorney general says the use of ”warrant-proof encryption” in popular apps and operating systems, is hampering law enforcement.Several apps encrypt communications end-to-end, which stop messages being legible if intercepted by criminals or law enforcement.In a speech, Rod Rosenstein said law enforcers were increasingly thwarted by such encryption.He met Home Secretary Amber Rudd on Thursday to discuss the issue.He will also meet the head of the UK’s GCHQ intelligence agency.”Increasingly, the tools we use to collect evidence run up against encryption tools which are designed to defeat them,” said Mr Rosenstein, speaking at the Global Cyber Security Summit in London.
