The Hill has obtained a draft of Senators Dianne Feinstein and Richard Burr's much-discussed and long-awaited encryption bill, entitled the "Compliance with Court Orders Act of 2016." The bill is designed "to require the provision of data in an intelligible format to a government pursuant to a court order, and for other purposes." I'm sure many Lawfare contributors will have thoughts to share. The full text of the bill is below (download pdf).
