The amount of encrypted traffic online has grown exponentially. This growth has occurred in the wake of the Snowden revelations, as well as the continuous stream of stories about corporate data leaks and hacks. As a response to these challenges, there has been a massive move for internet properties to have encryption by default.
Now, no one would argue that encryption isn’t beneficial. But we should acknowledge that this move towards default encryption is a major change, and while it’s a great thing for privacy, it’s a real challenge for enterprise and governmental security.
