Conference paper

A key escrow system with warrant bounds

We propose a key escrow system that permits warrants for the interception and decryption of communications for arbitrary time periods, and with either one or two communicating parties specified as the target. The system is simple and practical, and affords reasonable protection against misuse. We argue that use of such a system can produce both greater privacy protection and more effective law enforcement than we now enjoy
