Summary of Oct. 8, 1997 European Commission communication on European encryption policy. The report *rejects* the feared "Euro-Clipper" key "escrow" or "recovery" system (i.e. surrender of citizen's crypto keys to government for police convenience). The paper even hints at sanctions against EU member states that over-restrict encryption.
