New from TLS: Protecting Children in the Age of End-to-End Encryption.

Senior Project Director Laura Draper explores how to combat online child sexual exploitation and abuse when end-to-end encryption obscures the government’s access. Conversations about online child sexual exploitation and abuse often devolve into no-win arguments about the merits (or lack thereof) of end-to-end encryption. TLS Senior Project Director Laura Draper sidesteps this debate in the new report, Protecting Children in the Age of End-to-End Encryption, by assuming end-to-end encryption is here to stay, and focusing on how we can collaborate to combat these harms.  View the project and report
