What the gov't is going for now is killing automatic end-to-end encryption. Like Apple's iMessage, where [supposedly] the message in encrypted at each end so that only the destination devices can decrypt it, and not Apple. They want Apple to redesign the setup so that instead, when the iMessage arrives at Apple's server, it is/can be decrypted by Apple, and then re-encrypted [optional!] before being sent on to the destination device. This way, the gov't can force Apple to give up the messages [presumably with a court order].

Repeat with every other data transfer protocol by everyone, including BlackBerry.
