What Did NSA Director Say About Yahoo! Inc. (YHOO) CISO’s Question On Providing ‘Backdoors’ For Other Countries?

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO)’s CISO Alex Stamos questioned the NSA Director Mike Rogers about his views on building defects and golden master keys into US products and thereby enabling the ability to decrypt information by US Government. Rogers is conducting a public tour to soften the image of NSA among the public, as many people criticize NSA for spying and getting into privacy of general public. A ‘CNBC’ video published the discussion between Stamos and Rogers at a conference regarding digital spying.

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) CISO Stamos questioned the NSA Director in the question-answer session during the conference about his views on building ‘backdoor’ into products and should that be built for other countries like China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, France, etc too.

Rogers was very cautious in answering the question and said that the ability to decrypt information from products is very much achievable at the moment, but he added that FBI or NSA should not unilaterally decide on what information should be made accessible and what should not be made accessible. He feels that they can work their way through this technology for future use and he thinks that this technology has huge international applications.

“It sounds like you agree with Director Comey that we should be building defects into the encryption in our products so that the US government can decrypt,” Stamos questioned Rogers.

Stamos added to his question and asked Rogers that if he would entertain Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) building ‘backdoors’ for other countries in addition to US Government.

“My position is, hey look, I think that number 1, This is technically feasible. It needs to be done within a framework and I am the first one to acknowledge that you don’t want the FBI and you don’t want the NSA to unilaterally decide it, so what are we going to access and what are we not going to access. That shouldn’t be for us. I just believe that this is achievable and we will have to work our way through this. I am the first to acknowledge that this has international applications to this,” Rogers answered.
