In a conference related to cyber security in Washington, Chief Information Security Officer of Yahoo Inc., Mr. Alex Stamos met Mr. Rogers who is Director National Security Administration. Mr. Stamos asked Mr. Rogers about his view on the government appeal lately that companies makes “backdoors” in its products.
Backdoor means undisclosed entries or exits, that signify a pathway to offer access to data which is or else not accessible. Routine verification process ifs avoided by secret entries/exits with such a trick that the user goes undetected through the pathway.
The Chief of Yahoo’s (NASDAQ:YHOO) Security Mr. Stamos asked Mr. Rogers whether he agrees or disagrees with Director Federal Bureau of Investigation James Comey remarks on permitting the government of United States to have access to private encoded communication data.
The United States government has been alleged of spying on the encoded communications data of number of companies. Companies like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Google Inc. and Yahoo Inc. have started to encrypt their communication stats, because of this US government is unable to access the date of these companies.
Mr. Rogers answered Mr. Stamos in an unintended way and said that the US government and the companies having problem with this step should settle the matter on their own.
According to Mr. Rogers that an access must be allowed to legal authorities and a legal channel is required to make it possible. While responding to Mr. Stamos question he said that we both should have to “disagree or agree” on the effort of government to get to illegal email-backdoor program. However, Mr. Rogers denied saying anything about the rumors that National Security Agency Is hacking mobile phones and encryption codes for the purpose of eavesdropping or on putting tools on hard drives in computers.
In a leaked document of Edward Snowden about National security agency’s extensive eavesdropping, the government of US does not looks agree to the fact that technology companies encrypt their communication data. FBI and many other legal authorities have complained previously that their access is blocked to Google and Apple’s communication data. According to these authorities they are trying their best to gain access to break the encryption as these encryptions are considered as a hurdle in authentic investigation.
