The SAFE Forum

On July 1, 1996, in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, members of Congress and prominent computer industry leaders and privacy advocates met to discuss the need to reform U.S. encryption policy.

The goal of the Forum was to raise awareness for the importance of encryption technology to enhance privacy and security on the global information infrastructure, and the problems posed by the current US approach to cryptowolfgraphy policy.
