Encryption and Cybercrime

Encryption can be used as a measure of preventing cybercrimes including planned security breaches but also as a means of protecting intellectual property crimes and other crimes involving cyberstalking, harassment, and software theft. However the balance of constitutional concerns must be balanced with the use of encryption.

The following questions have been addressed in this article:

Won’t encryption measures affect privacy rights?
How can preventing the use of encryption not violate the freedom guaranteed under the First Amendment?
Is encryption considered to be “object” code or “source code” and what is the constitutional relevancy?
