Encryption essential to security, say intel agencies. UK PM Cameron didn't get the (leaked) memo.


"A secret US cybersecurity report warned that government and private computers were being left vulnerable to online attacks from Russia, China and criminal gangs because encryption technologies were not being implemented fast enough," writes James Ball at the Guardian.

"The advice, in a newly uncovered five-year forecast written in 2009, contrasts with the pledge made by David Cameron this week to crack down on encryption use by technology companies."
