+1. Perens' response is well worth reading.

Universal encryption is not a a laudable goal.

(I'm also struck by the thought that Farrell's draft carefully defines 'attack', yet does not define 'defend'. To defend or not is a choice; that choice is neglected.)

I have written a reply to draft-farrell-perpass-attack-00
Please read it at http://perens.com/works/ietf/perpass/appropriate-response/01.pdf
The reply is _not_ in the form of an Internet Draft, because it's political discourse.

    Thanks
