While many lawmakers are talking about needing backdoors for encryption in our world, it seems as though the US Senate has decided that HTTPS is needed on its own site and its private messages need backdoor-free encryption as well. US Senator Ron Wyden penned a letter to the Senate welcoming them to the club. He also discusses the fact that the encrypted Signal messaging application has been approved for Senate usage as well. Now can I get a back door to check up on what I need to know about my Senators? This whole thing kind of makes me chuckle. Both HardOCP and HardForum have been fully moved over to HTTPS now, and boy was that fun.
