The amendments recommended from the committee in regards to the #aaBill are not sufficient and should be not be passed, When the government and @AustralianLabor have failed to tell the public why there is the immediate need for this bill. I am strongly worried.
That the passage of this bill will have grave consequences for the industry and all industries that rely on technology, given that evidence provided showed that...
1) Applications expected to be targeted such as WhatsApp are not under Australian jurisdiction and 2) Encryption used such as End-To-End encryption CAN NOT BE BROKEN WITH OUT WEAKENING THE ENCRYPTION ITS SELF OR BUILDING BACKDOORS that would threaten every Australian
And their use of technology, the other methods could be interception at the carrier level which presents further risks such as those encountered when modems or routers are hacked such as the recent reveal of NSA tech that could break into certain modems/routers. This means
If a criminal or other parties where to find backdoors such as this in routers which provide the CRITICAL infrastructure that is the internet they could reasonabley be able to take down a countries communications network during a crisis.
I would reiterate that testing for such vulnerabilities and risks are BANNED within the act, companies and individuals would be under compulsion to not reveal if they have had to build "systems for access" and as such it would be reasonable that the practice of.
Finding bugs or vulernabilties and disclosing them would be either illegal or greatly threatened by the act, if a pen tester found this vulnerability and disclosed it would they be acting in defiance of the law? this is what @AustralianLabor, @NickChampionMP should be asking
There are so many questions and considerations that need to be undertook that I literally would run out of space on twitter, this bill should not be rushed at all. considering any request within the act has a allowed time for response of 28 days I do not believe that.
The governments concern regarding christmas is the real reason the bill has been rushed, @AustralianLabor has indicated that they are working with the government in part due to the evidence agencies provided in private, I think if the public is being asked to..
sacrifice our liberties and our safety online then the public should be informed of the reasons not blank statements but credible information and advice that would prove beound any doubt that this should take place. I will never vote Labor ever again
If they side with the government and take the biggest sledge hammer to the australian tech industry we've ever seen. @billshortenmp #thanksBillForTakingOurEncryption. #aabill
