Updated #CryptoDebate Bibliography

Blog Post
June 16, 2015

In November 2014, ahead of OTI’s public debate on law enforcement vs. smartphone encryption, we published a detailed bibliography of relevant articles, analyses and op-eds on the recent “Crypto Debate” that has emerged after Apple and Google’s announcements that they intend to move to smartphone encryption by default. Today we are releasing an update of that bibliography, which covers the most recent developments in the conflict between law enforcement officials, privacy advocates, technologists, and industry experts.

This is not a comprehensive list of every article that has been published, but rather attempts to catalogue the key developments and arguments made in this debate. The document is a work in progress, so if you know of something relevant that we missed in the bibliography, please email it to wilson@opentechinstitute.org.

Find the newest version of the Crypto Debate Bibliography here.

For more of OTI’s work on encryption, see the original bibliography, a video of the public event “Is FBI ‘Going Dark’ or in a Golden Age of Surveillance?”, our comments to the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of freedom of expression, and coverage of Kevin Bankston’s testimony before the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee’s Subcommittee on Information Technology.
