Australia passes new law to thwart strong encryption
Ars Technica -------- On Thursday, the Australian parliament approved a measure that critics say will weaken encryption in favor of law enforcement and the demands of government. The new law, which has been pushed for since at least 2017, requires that companies provide a way to get at encrypted communications and data via a warrant process. It also imposes fines of up to A$10 million for companies that do not comply and A$50,000 for individuals who do not comply. In short, the law thwarts (or at least tries to thwart) strong encryption.
