Australia proposes law to access encrypted data from tech firms

Australia on Friday proposed new laws to compel companies such as U.S. social media giant Facebook and device manufacturer Apple to provide security agencies access to encrypted messages.

They don’t seem to understand that you can’t just let them have access to the information. Once access is grant, security is weaker for everyone.

    Especially in light of “Ransomware” attacks like Wannacry, Petya and the like. Wake the hell up.

    it is about as good an idea as them wanting to fit tracking devices to cars and such “to track stolen vehicles.”

    Professed intentions and real intentions.

    And who will watch the watchers?
