qui trovate il draft del civil liberties committee (PDF) del parlamento europeo riguardo una proposta di regolamentazione da parte del parlamento e del consiglio europeo in materia di rispetto della vita privata e della protezione dei dati personali nelle comunicazioni elettroniche.

ecco tre passaggi chiave :

  • Sui metadati: Confidentiality of electronic communications ensures that information exchanged between parties and the external elements of such communication, including when the information has been sent, from where, to whom, is not to be revealed to anyone other than to the parties involved in a communication. The principle of confidentiality should apply to current and future means of communication, including calls, internet access, instant messaging applications, e-mail, internet phone calls and messaging provided through social media.
  • Sulla crittografia (raccomandata): The providers of electronic communications services shall ensure that  there is sufficient protection in place against unauthorised access or alterations to the electronic communications data, and that the confidentiality and safety of the transmission are also guaranteed by the nature of the means of transmission used or by state-of-the-art end-to-end encryption of the electronic communications data. Furthermore, when encryption of electronic communications data is used, decryption, reverse engineering or monitoring of such communications shall be prohibited.
  • Sulle backdoor: Member States shall not impose any obligations on electronic communications service providers that would result in the weakening of the security and encryption of their networks and services.
