Subject: Council of Europe draft Cybercrime treaty
The Council of Eurpoe has released a draft of its cybercrime treaty.
The idea here is to get signatory nations to adopt similar laws as
their own national laws. A news article I read states that the treaty
would criminalize some forms of security testing and analysis.
One provision would require:
> Section 2 Procedural law
> Article 14 - Search and Seizure of Stored Computer Data
< . . . . >
> 5. Each Party shall take such legislative and other measures as may
> be necessary to empower its competent authorities to order for the
> purposes of criminal investigations and proceedings any person who
> has knowledge about the functioning of the computer system or
> measures applied to secure the computer data therein to provide all
> necessary information, as is reasonable, to enable the undertaking
> of the measures referred to in paragraphs 1 and 4.
This would require giving keys to authorities who were investigating
The draft treaty (English version) is at:
