The German government has announced the creation of a federal agency tasked with creating cutting-edge defense technology. But some lawmakers are worried that it may develop state-of-the-art offensive capabilities. „More digital security would definitely do us all good, and if the new cyber agency does that, it would be a step forward,“ Domscheit-Berg said. „We need better encryption and more open source software, but I’m skeptical an agency located somewhere between the Defense Ministry and the Interior Ministry is setting the right priority.“
