Going Darker 2.0: Policy Recommendations for Law Enforcement, the Intelligence Community and the Private Sector [open pdf - 261KB]
From the Executive Summary: "The public and private sectors face a growing national security concern resulting from the ability of criminals, terrorists, and state actors to obfuscate their activities by 'going dark' through encryption or other means. Strong encryption ensures digital communications are protected for secure commerce and trade to strengthen cybersecurity and to safeguard private information, national security, and the global economy. Unfortunately, rapidly evolving technological advancements--particularly in digital and communications security--impede the ability of US law enforcement and the intelligence community to collect and analyze information that is critical to thwarting potential threats. The recommendations put forth in this paper are intended to help the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) tackle the going dark problem and help mitigate potential threats with help from the private sector."
