This is the April 19, 2016 hearing on "Deciphering the Debate Over Encryption: Industry and Law Enforcement Perspectives," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Tim Murohy: "We are meeting today to consider the deceptively complex question: Should the government have the ability to lawfully access encrypted technology and communications? This is the question at the center of a heated public debate, catalyzed earlier this year when the FBI obtained a court order to compel Apple to assist in unlocking an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists. But this isn't a new question. Strong encryption has existed for decades. For years, motivated individuals have had access to the tools necessary to conceal their activities from law enforcement. And for years, the government has repeatedly tried to limit the use of or obtain access to encrypted data." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ron Hickman, Amy Hess, Thomas P. Galati, Charles Cohen, Bruce Sewell, Amit Yoran, Matthew Blaze, and Daniel J.Weitzner.
