Top government officials, including the head of the National Security Agency, have called for policy and technology experts to start a conversation on the viability of different proposals to allow government access to otherwise private conversations. Such calls ignore the more than two decades of discussions over back doors, key escrow, encryption mandates that have been ongoing since the so-called “crypto wars” in the 1990s. However, for much of the last two years the two sides have talked past one another, or engaged in only perfunctory public discussions, too short and too formulaic to move past talking points and dig into the hard questions.

The Crypto Summit, brought to you by Access, will focus on digging beneath the surface of the debate to identify the areas of disagreement around the adoption and use of encryption and framing the questions that underlie these disagreements.
