Google Chairman-Encryption the Solution to Government Snooping

With all the outrage about the NSA and governments of other countries snooping in our web business, many large providers are diving into encrypting point to point traffic with much harder to crack code. Bloomberg.com reports that Google Chairman Eric Schmidt says this may actually prevent governments from censoring their populations’ communications within 10 years. He emphasizes that the solution to government surveillance is to encrypt everything. Schmidt says the type of encryption they are adding at Google won’t be crackable by the government until at least 2030.
