Why not? Robert came with the example of a law firm. Lawyers exchange
messages with their clients, and in criminal cases the police might want
to intercept and decrypt them. That's illegal in many countries and may
not be used as evidence, but they will try anyway. So encryption that
works between the corporate computer of a lawyer and the private
computer of his/her client would be usefull.
