Internet firms to be banned from offering unbreakable encryption under new laws

3:16PM GMT 02 Nov 2015

Internet and social media companies will be banned from putting
customer communications beyond their own reach under new laws to be
unveiled on Wednesday.
Companies such as Apple, Google and others will no longer be able to
offer encryption so advanced that even they cannot decipher it when
asked to, the Daily Telegraph can disclose.
Measures in the Investigatory Powers Bill will place in law a
requirement on tech firms and service providers to be able to provide
unencrypted communications to the police or spy agencies if requested
through a warrant.
