The UK Home Office this week proposed a comprehensive draft Investigatory Powers Bill (IPB) that would consolidate and amend various existing UK surveillance and lawful intercept legislation, including the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA).  Significantly, the IPB does not propose any direct restriction of mass market encryption ‒ the "Going Dark" problem, about which both the UK and U.S. governments have been making a lot of noise ‒ but it does provide a variety of other powers that may make NSA and FBI rather envious.
