Ban crypto, cripple commerce

Author: JT Smith

Commentary from ZDNet: "Following last week's terrorist attacks on symbols of U.S. economic and military strength, the IT
community needs to help the nation focus on mitigating future threats-not on closing the doors
that the horse got through. Knee-jerk reactions, all too likely from historically ill-informed
legislators, could easily cripple commercial and personal applications of encryption, wireless
communications, digital cash and media technologies, with little inconvenience to criminals."
