Prosecution is not in favor of decryption command




The Prosecution is not in favor of the decryption command, which reports EenVandaag. Such a requirement for suspects to deliver encryption keys is part of the law computer crime III, likely before the summer is dealt with in the House.

Why the prosecution not in favor of the ontsleutelplicht is not clear from the item of EenVandaag Wednesday. However, the proposal has long been controversial among lawyers for the right to do not cooperating with your own conviction. “It’s a mental effort to deliver your password and in principle, the government can not commit to do that,” for example, says Jan-Jaap Oerlemans, researcher with Fox-IT in relation to internet and computer security and digital investigative powers.

Europol chief Rob Wainwright would welcome such a commitment: “We need to ensure a better balance so that the police can perform its role in the release, but also safe from internet there is need for legislation.”. According to him, the suspects use strong encryption to encrypt communications a growing problem. The broadcast is about a Dutchman suspected of extortion of girls over the internet. One of them committed suicide in 2012, and the refusal of the accused to issue passwords hampered the investigation.

The decryption command of the proposed law cybercrime III would only apply to suspects of terrorism and child pornography. If someone refuses to cooperate, risking those in jail up to three years.
