"The director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael S. Rogers, also attempted a conciliatory tone at the RSA event. Admiral Rogers did not speak to the Apple case, or even mention the word encryption, but repeatedly emphasized the need for partnership and dialogue to fight cyberthreats. “I implore all of us to be part of that constructive dialogue,” he said. “It’s time to stop talking past each other.”
In a speech made nearby at San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club, Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter acknowledged that encryption had been a “hot topic here in the Bay Area,” but said he could not address the Apple case because of the ongoing litigation. Instead, he noted that the Pentagon had a vested interest in strong encryption and that the Defense Department is “the largest user of encryption in the world.”"
