Not a new topic ... but Christopher Wray is on a mission ... and some of what he wants might actually affect the WEB too!

FBI head honcho Christopher Wray is rather peeved that you all think the US government is trying to weaken cryptography, privacy, and online security, by demanding backdoors in encryption software.

That has been discussed in the halls of Congress in the USA as well.

So far that has been squashed for reasons of the country's founding.
