In "The Interface" op-ed series for The Verge, Silicon Valley Editor Casey Newton writes about the developing encryption battle currently taking place in India and how it may have a trickle-down effect across the globe. Newton explains the Indian government is on the verge of banning encryption with rules that "would force tech platforms to cooperate continuously with government requests." Newton adds, "Threats to privacy are multiplying faster than tech or society can deal with them. In such a world, encryption is one of the last — and best — tools we have to fight back."
