A backdoor will allow hackers of all persuasion, not just Government. This is why US are angry with Huawei, they spent a fortune with Sony, Apple and Samsung getting backdoor encryption, Huawei wont allow it.

Priti Patel slams Facebook as she says spooks should see encrypted conversations

Priti Patel has accused Facebook of making it harder for the police to investigate child abuse and terrorism cases as she called for spooks to be handed access to encrypted conversations.

The new Home Secretary hit out at the use of end-to-end encryption to protect the privacy of Facebook and WhatsApp users as she said social media giants must not "empower criminals" with their products.

The comments came after a two-day behind-closed-doors meeting of ministers and officials from the 'Five Eyes' intelligence partnership, made up of the UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

Writing in The Telegraph, Ms Patel warned: "Where systems are deliberately designed using end-to-end encryption, which prevents any form of access to content, no matter what crimes that may enable, we must act."

She added: "The use of end-to-end encryption in this way has the potential to have serious consequences for the vital work which companies already undertake to identify and remove child abuse and terrorist content...

"It will also hamper our own law enforcement agencies, and those of our allies, in their ability to identify and stop criminals abusing children, trafficking drugs, weapons and people, or terrorists plotting attacks."

End-to-end encryption means that messages can only be decoded by the sender and the recipient, and tech companies have argued that any move to weaken such tools would empower hackers and make sensitive information more vulnerable.

But, in a joint statement, the Five Eyes nations said: "Tech companies should include mechanisms in the design of their encrypted products and services whereby governments, acting with appropriate legal authority, can obtain access to data in a readable and usable format."

US Attorney General William Barr added: "Encryption presents a unique challenge. We must ensure that we do not stand by as advances in technology create spaces where criminal activity of the most heinous kind can go undetected and unpunished.

"Indeed, making our virtual world more secure should not come at the expense of making us more vulnerable in the real world. We are grateful for the leadership of Home Secretary Patel in facilitating these critical discussions and shared commitment to safety for all."

Beijing could blacklist FedEx as ‘unreliable entity’ after another Huawei delivery screw-up
American courier FedEx has apologized for failing to deliver a package to the US which contained a Huawei smartphone. The incident, which is not the first of its kind to affect Huawei, was explained as an “operational mistake.”

The parcel belonged to PC Magazine which reportedly tried to send a Huawei P30 smartphone from Britain to the United States. Tracking services revealed the shipment was returned to London after it spent several hours in Indianapolis.

“The package in question was mistakenly returned to the shipper, and we apologize for this operational error,” a FedEx spokeswoman told Reuters.

The company also said it “can accept and transport all Huawei products except for any shipments to listed Huawei entities on the US Entity List.”

Following the incident, China’s technology giant Huawei tweeted it was not within FedEx’s right to prevent the delivery. It added that the courier had a “vendetta.”

China’s foreign ministry said on Monday that FedEx should offer a proper explanation.

The so-called ‘operational error’ comes less than a month after FedEx apologized for rerouting packages sent between offices of Huawei. Two packages containing “urgent documents” which were sent from Japan ended up being sent to the US. Huawei’s shipping agent blocked two more from Vietnam, which FedEx had also attempted to reroute. Huawei’s spokesman then said the incident had “undermined their confidence” in the US-based shipping company.

The latest incident has sparked renewed criticism of FedEx on Chinese social media. The topic ‘FedEx apologizes again’ was trending on China’s microblog platform Weibo.

China’s state-run newspaper the Global Times tweeted on Sunday that FedEx is likely to be added to the Chinese government’s upcoming ‘unreliable entities’ list of foreign firms, groups and individuals that harm the interests of Chinese companies.

Huawei has become an important point of conflict between the US and China as a part of the ongoing trade war. In May, the Trump administration added Huawei to the entity list effectively barring it from doing business with American companies which supply Huawei with necessary parts and technology. Google and Microsoft have suspended business with Huawei in order to conform to the US trade ban.

The US alleges that Huawei could be spying for the Chinese government, a claim which the company, along with the Chinese government, has repeatedly denied.
