Speaking at a cybercrime symposium at the Georgetown University Law School, U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein once again called for encryption backdoors, Wired reports. Rosenstein praised efforts to find a mutual technological solution to the debate; however, the attorney general said encryption continues to hinder law enforcement investigations. "There is nothing virtuous about refusing to help develop responsible encryption, or in shaming people who understand the dangers of creating any spaces — whether real-world or virtual — where people are free to victimize others without fear of getting caught or punished," Rosenstein said.
