US and other governments demanding encryption backdoors

Apple InsiderThe privacy of Internet users "is not absolute," according to a statement from a five-country coalition that includes the United States following a meeting about security, with the overall theme demanding technology companies to make social networks and messaging services safer and to offer more support to government agencies to break encryption and access potentially sensitive data.
