HOORAY - now @AdamBandt will speak some sense - the #AAbill undermines our tech industry and civil liberties. Once you create a door into otherwise secure and encrypted communications, you cannot know who else will access it. aph.gov.au/Watch_Read_Lis…
He explains that in other countries, the threat of secure communications no longer being secure has outweighed the perceived 'benefits'. In requiring weakness by law, you lose control over who can exploit that weakness.
There is no such thing as requiring companies to unlock encryption that doesn't create systemic weakness. What the #AABill does is not only request tech companies to assist, but to actively change their software and product.
This bill has managed to not only raise the ire of civil libertarians because it means the end of privacy, but the tech industry has said if Australia is where weaknesses in software are law, why would we develop here? These are important questions and big red flags.
The ALP tell us that we have fixed it, says @AdamBandt , they have provided 50 pages of amendments 10 minutes ago after closed door meetings with the government. It's not good enough @markdreyfusQCMP and @MikeKellyofEM - it is an unconscionable rush job.
Australia will start to become a place avoided by the tech industry, predicts @AdamBandt , citing techies that have explained that they cannot expose their customers data to the weaknesses instituted by the #AAbill
@AdamBandt cites @mcannonbrookes in the House of Reps on how reckless it is to rush complex legislation like the #AAbill through in days. Walking in with 50 pages of amendments at the final hour is not the way you deal with an important issue like this.
