Australia set to pass controversial encryption law

Accepted submission by Anonymous Coward at 2018-12-05 13:26:15 from the Everyone cave in dept. dept.

With the Australian Labor Party caving in on the proposed encryption law that will allow Australian police and agencies to access private data directly from vendors the new proposed laws are now agreed in principle to introduce government level snooping of user messages and encrypted files []. Agencies like ASIO or the Australian Federal Police will have the ability to request telecommunication and tech companies help them with their investigations and compel companies to build ways to allow targeted access to encrypted communications data.
