    End-to-end encryption of communications

    Question for written answer E-003404/2020
    to the Commission
    Rule 138
    Patrick Breyer (Verts/ALE)

    Rules on lawful interception require telecommunications providers to give law enforcement agencies access to communications content under certain conditions. Where end-to-end encryption is used, only access to encrypted content can be provided.

    Does EU legislation on lawful interception ban telecommunications providers from supplying communications devices (e.g. routers and smartphones) to their customers which support end-to-end encryption that the provider cannot decrypt?
