Kevin Bankston was quoted in the US News & World Report about the Senate's draft encryption bill:
Kevin Bankston, director of the Open Technology Institute at the New America Foundation, opposed the proposed bill in a strongly worded statement.
"Not only does this bill undermine our security, it is also a massive Internet censorship bill, demanding that online platforms like Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store police their platforms to stop the distribution of secure apps," Bankston said. "I can say without exaggeration that this draft bill is the most ludicrous, dangerous, technically illiterate tech policy proposal of the 21st century so far."
