Internet Australia, a not-for-profit that claims to represent Internet users in the country, has urged Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton to intervene in what it characterises as "the inadequate consultation process" over the encryption bill that was presented to Parliament last month.
An unlikely alliance of consumer groups, rights bodies, big corporations and industry lobby groups has united in what is known as the Alliance for a Safe and Secure Internet and urged the Federal Government to reconsider any further movement on its encryption bill.
Victoria's information commissioner Sven Bluemmel has raised the possibility that a one-off hack, created to satisfy a demand by law enforcement that access be provided to a particular device, could well end up being re-used with modifications, resulting in a situation which the draft encryption bill has pledged to avoid - systemic weaknesses.
