Security And Freedom through Encryption (SAFE) Act
The SAFE bill, first introduced in 1996, would:
- make it easier to export products with encryption functionality in them,
- prohibit the government from mandating key escrow systems,
- assert Americans' right to use encryption of their choice without key escrow, and
- make it a crime to use encryption in a felony, specifically to thwart law enforcement.
How can I help?
A crucial part of the efforts to pass the S.A.F.E. bill is grass-roots support.
You can be a part of the army of Netizens working to reform the encryption
regulations by joining the Adopt Your Legislator campaign, and contacting
your member of Congress when they need to hear from you.
