             The EU Parliament has passed the e-privacy regulation, which requires the introduction of new data protection and IT security measures from internet services. Among other things, it is clear against the weakening of encryption.
            

        

        The European Parliament adopted the draft e-privacy regulation by 318 votes against 280 votes against and 20 abstentions. The final negotiations between Parliament and the EU Member States are still pending. The adopted draft regulation introduces new data protection concepts for all electronic services, not just for communication and internet services. An amendment allows service providers to process metadata including location data based on the informed consent of the users. Users may, however, withdraw their consent to additional services, which could, for example, include the evaluation of the surfing history, without invalidating the contract with the basic service.
The regulation, which is supported by the W3C, is also supported by the regulation, which is not restricted to browsers, but can also be applied to other technologies such as Bluetooth or networked vehicles. Moreover, the regulation does not deal with the use of cookies in particular, but of any kind of identifiers. In the past, there were discussions about the question of offline tracking, which should only be possible in the future with the explicit consent of the users.
Clear refusal to backdoorsThe deputies accepted numerous amendments, which had previously been given little chance. Thus service providers are to publish the methods which they use for the anonymization of sensitive data such as location or metadata. They should also use end-to-end encryption for data communication, with the aim of banning reverse engineering, decryption and monitoring methods. Member States should also not oblige service providers to mitigate security and encryption methods. It is therefore not permitted to use software for the purposes of "national security".
Thomas Duhr, Vice-President of the Bundesverband Digitale Wirtschaft (BVDW), criticizes the fact that the regulation "makes it virtually impossible to offer and finance digital offers without barriers." He believes that measuring the extent of the survey is thus made impossible, which means that reliable ratios for the advertising industry are impossible. Friedemann Ebelt from the Bürgerrechtsverein, on the other hand, is delighted: "The advertising and tracking industry has not succeeded in convincing MPs that the fundamental right to privacy is less important than the interests of the data industry."
