According to ZDnet:
Members of the intelligence-sharing alliance Five Eyes, along with government representatives for Japan and India, have published a statement over the weekend calling on tech companies to come up with a solution for law enforcement to access end-to-end encrypted communications.
The statement is the alliance’s latest effort to get tech companies to agree to encryption backdoors.
The Five Eyes alliance, comprised of the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, have made similar calls to tech giants in 2018 and 2019, respectively.
Just like before, government officials claim tech companies have put themselves in a corner by incorporating end-to-end encryption (E2EE) into their products.

An attack on encryption is an attack on freedom. Luckily you can’t ban math. https://t.co/Ja2C0tuuM5
