Violent extremists like ISIS meet in the open on Facebook or Twitter. Then they take the conversation private, using technology called encryption to encode their messages. It’s called “going dark”, and it’s one of the most alarming concerns facing police and counter-terrorism officials worldwide right now.
Questions for discussion:
1. What would be an appropriate model to combat terrorist communication channels through social media outlets?
2. If an online user was believed to be a participant of illegal activities , what kind of evidence against this user would deem him guilty? Would it be considered a breech of freedom of speech to assume their guilt?
