The French government has proposed a law that would mandate a key-recovery
system for all encrypted electronic documents, a move that is opposed by the

national-security interests, economic interests and the protection of
personal privacy."=A0 (Wall Street Journal 20 Oct 97) From Edupage (REAL ONE=
