In Autumn 2017, Rosenstein suggested that encryption should be controlled, claiming that "new technologies will pose new dangers if innovations develop so quickly that the laws cannot keep up with them."[2]

“Responsible encryption is achievable. Responsible encryption can involve effective, secure encryption that allows access only with judicial authorization. Such encryption already exists.”
