    Crypto wars

    Is the UK trying to ban iMessage, FaceTime, Whatsapp? Seems unclear – they make contradictory statements about encryption being important but also about needing access to communications. Let’s try something simple – assume governments get some “back door keys” in there…

    If a British citizen with an iPhone purchased in France and roaming in Germany iMessages a Chinese citizen roaming in Sweden using an iPhone purchased in Denmark, which government’s keys need to be inserted in the iMessage communications by an American company (Apple) legally based in Luxembourg?
