Short Take: Crypto subcommittee formed

The Commerce Department is forming a new advisory subcommittee on encryption policy called the President's Export Council Subcommittee on Encryption. The 25-person subcommittee will advise the department secretary on economic, privacy, and security matters relating to encryption, according to a Federal Register notice. The notice said the subcommittee will have a "balanced representation" of encryption vendors and government officials.
