The IEEE has recently released a position statement: “In Support of Strong Encryption”

“IEEE supports the use of unfettered strong encryption to protect confidentiality and integrity of data and communications. We oppose efforts by governments to restrict the use of strong encryption and/or to mandate exceptional access mechanisms such as ‘backdoors’ or ‘key escrow schemes’ in order to facilitate government access to encrypted data.”
