Prosecutors want access to decryption tools

Published måndag 27 augusti 2012 kl 10.34

Swedish prosecutors say they need to be able to access encrypted data in order to fight organized crime.

Much of the data traffic in Sweden can be monitored because of the controversial FRA law. But prosecutors at the Swedish Economic Crime Authority tell Swedish Radio News that the growing use of encryption often leaves them powerless to read the contents of what they can access.


However, Anders Ahlqvist, an expert in IT crime at the National Police Board, says a change in the law wouldn’t help, because of the difficulties in decryption.

He tells Swedish Radio News it would be better to gain access to information before suspected criminals have an opportunity to encrypt it. But such secret computer surveillance would also require a change in the law, as it is currently illegal.
