From the Purpose and Summary: "H.R. 850, the Security And Freedom through Encryption (SAFE) Act, modernizes the encryption policy of the United States. It also addresses law enforcement and national security needs as strong encryption products become more widely used. In summary, H.R. 850, as amended by the Committee on Commerce, clarifies U.S. policy regarding the domestic use of encryption products, including prohibiting the Federal government or State governments from requiring key recovery or a similar technique in most circumstances and adding criminal penalties for the use of encryption products in the cover-up of felonious activity."
