Australia goes full tilt toward encryption bill

“Why it matters: The bill gives law enforcement the ability to compel tech firms to circumvent encryption in their products to aid law enforcement” reports The original bill was marketed as one that gives law enforcement access without the creation of back doors or mass surveillance, and indeed it specifically bans “systemic surveillance.”. Australia is a member of the Five Eyes alliance along with the U.S., U.K., Canada and New Zealand, and the bill is seen by many as a stepping stone toward new encryption laws in other nations.
