1/ A word on the #AAbill and #encryption more broadly, as it has been flying around a bit today.

Let me be really clear: These powers have been used already - that is, encryption has been requested to be broken #Auspol
2/ This was disclosed by Dept of Home Affairs by citing their submission to the PJCIS, but we'll never know who. Anyone who wants to speak about it is risking jail time under the act #AAbill #encryption #Auspol
3/ It's Home Affairs, Peter Dutton and "we stopped the boats" all over again.

Did they? We'll never know. It's unprecedented new powers and an operational secret #AAbill #encryption #Auspol

So I wanted to encrypt some files. Thought about using 7z+password. Stackexchange folks said "Didn't review it but it should be fine. You can browse the code yourself". So I did. After a few mins I noticed they use 8byte "random" IV. Yes, half of IV is zeroes. But it gets worse.
Aside from the fact that 7z XORs plaintext with zeroes, I was curious about the "RandomGenerator" which generates IV. That's when I vomited. The first comments say "This is not very good random number generator. Please use it only for salt." It is not used only for salt.
Yes, it uses PID and time(null) as seed. Yes, this is 7zip's random generation code running on your computers in 2019. More "cursed" code below. #7zip #encryption #facepalm #randomness #entropy #RNG #crypto #cryptofail

"Understanding #encryption & the #aabil" for #dumbbastards like me
.#Encryption & #privacy are strongly & deeply connected.
"Privacy", as understood in AU, is an individual's #humanright to #privacy, as enshrined in legislation, created in the @Parliament's, both federal & states, to guarantee individuals their #HumanRight as detailed by the @UN & interpreted by our legislators & the courts

If you’re just tuning in to #auspol, let me catch you up on the high-stakes poker game the Govt and Opp have going here:

Coalition has a choice: prevent Labor & x-bench amended bill that would get #kidsoffnauru from reaching the Reps for a vote (which it would likely lose) – but in doing so also prevent final passage of #aabill (#encryption).
At the moment, parliamentary procedures are being used in Senate by Coalition, Bernardi & Hanson to delay getting to point where #kidsoffnauru amendments are voted on. Some filibustering going on, though Senate President is trying to curtail it.

Manoeuvering in the parliament this morning is all about timing…..

Here’s an explanation of what’s going on. Stay with me:
#Encryption bill: Govt & Opp agreed to a plan to pass bill unamended through Reps, amend in Senate once Labor double-checked them, then back to Reps to sign off on changes.
Nauru: Senate expected to agree to amendments to a migration-related bill that would mirror the Phelps #kidsoffnauru bill details, which would then need to go to Reps for a vote, too.
