Encryption is the process of translating messages into secret code. Cyptography is becoming the battlefield where both personal privacy advocates and national security agents are digging in their heels. Should the government be permitted to restrict the use of cryptography, or to restrict export of products that use encryption? Should the FBI be able to require that only encryption it can decipher be used by Americans? Hot issue!
