More about the encryption bill:

This bill would create more security risks than it would address.

It will harm the security of all users of the Internet, and would lead to an increase in government hacking.

The proposed measures, such as granting the government the freedom to undermine specific encrypted systems, effectively create a backdoor into end-to-end encryption despite assurances from government that this is not the case.

This bill gives too much power to the Australian government to access our communications, without the strong safeguards that this high risk proposal should require.

The risk to personal privacy is considerable. This bill would undermine trust in technologies that are created, or deployed, in Australia.

Undermining encryption technologies does not just weaken them for law enforcement, but for everyone – including malicious actors. We cannot make our most sensitive personal information vulnerable.
