Clipper chip

Clipper chip
   A low-cost encryption device backed by the U.S. federal government. The chip would allow businesses to transmit encoded messages, but at the same time, allow certain government agencies to intercept and decode the messages if criminal activities were suspected. Needless to say, this proposal has generated a lot of intense discussion, particularly from civil rights groups concerned with an individual's right to privacy and other ethical issues; other potential users want access to the best available encryption systems, not just those put forward by the government.
