Encryption technology is being blamed for at least part of the inability to prevent the Paris attack. Is encryption in danger?

Total privacy and total security are mutually exclusive of each other.

The same technology that hides your mistress' messages from your wife can be used to hide your jihadist plans from the government.

Technology changes everything. In some regards, it levels the playing field for the little guys. It makes it possible for a small group of terrorists to execute effective missions against an opponent with a trillion dollar budget.

That being said... Strong encryption technology is necessary...ironically for security purposes.

it's something I've been following in the UK- Cameron wants to ban encryption in the name of national security. Penny wise and pound foolish, IMO

I agree. Does he also want government data unencrypted?

I presume so. and a backdoor key for everything else, which is incredibly stupid from a security standpoint

it's brilliant! the only way to make sure terrorists can't have guns or suicide vests...is to force everyone to be naked!
