The Australian Labor Party has termed "unacceptable" the government's introduction of its encryption bill into Parliament on Thursday, just 10 days after public submissions to the draft ended and with no response released to stakeholders.
Global software industry advocate BSA, the software alliance, has urged the Australian Government to include in its encryption bill a judicial oversight and challenge mechanism in order to ensure that any new powers given to law enforcement are not abused.
A group of 17 companies and organisations has signed an open letter asking the Australian Government not to promulgate a law forcing technology companies to decrypt secure communications for the purposes of law enforcement.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
