 Subject:  Workshop at Europol on dealing with encryption
 Answer in writing 

On 24 May 2017, the European police agency Europol organised a workshop on dealing with encryption in criminal investigations. The topics covered were: techniques for recognising encrypted data, decrypting encrypted data and collecting unencrypted data prior to encryption, or after decryption with the aid of Trojan programmes. Discussion focused on the technical aspects.

What police authorities or other participants made presentations and what technical aspects did those presentations cover?

What techniques for recognising encrypted data, decrypting encrypted data and collecting unencrypted data before encryption or after decryption was Europol made aware of at the workshop and which of them could the agency itself employ on behalf of the Member States?
