And now @WilkieMP is up to speak on the #aabill…
It is a bad idea to build a known vulnerability into encryption software says @WilkieMP To design a vulnerability, a weakness, access, is an invitation to wrongdoers to find the key and eavesdrop or see what people thought was a secure communication #aabill
What will our security partners and our business partners think of that? I think it is a reasonable conclusion to draw that there will be concern in other countries and business with operations in Australia with vulnerabilities in our ICT.
this #aabill is ill considered says @WilkieMP . The power of the state has now grown so far in this country as to be unacceptable. There have been many hundreds of changes to legislation to deal with the threat of terrorism, only some sensible improvements.
Many of the changes made to legislation are not well considered and not well justified. Reminds that mandatory metadata was a bad idea and bad policy and the metadata can be accessed without merit and without a warrant.
This #AAbill is another unacceptable extension of the powers of the state. The gov and the opposition is in lock step. We do not have a tough opposition that holds the gov to account. Too often they just say yes, out of fear of being wedged. Why the rush? Shame ALP, SHAME.
Parliament's job is to be just as much a check on the security services as it is to give them the tools they need. Australia is in a pre police state, with excessive legislation "to go after terrorists", but the scope creep is endemic on metadata will happen with #aabill.
Now @WilkieMP raises the question of why Witness K and Bernard Collaery are being prosecuted as the Attorney General leaves the chamber.
