Australia to compel technology firms to provide access to encrypted missives

Math be damned: Australian PM demands encrypted chat apps be opened up for law enforcement AUSTRALIA: New law to allow govt compel tech firms to decrypt messages underway

Speaking to the media, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, said: "We've got a real problem in that the law enforcement agencies are increasingly unable to find out what terrorists and drug traffickers and paedophile rings are up to because of the very high levels of encryption..."

"We need to ensure that the Internet is not used as a dark place for bad people to hide their criminal activities from the law", the report quoted Turnbull as saying. "I'm not a cryptographer, but what we are seeking to do is to secure their assistance".

Russian Federation expects 'political wisdom' from U.S. over diplomatic spat
The Trump administration has tied returning the compounds to Russian Federation if Moscow shows "acts of good faith" in Syria. Undersecretary of State Thomas Shannon who will discuss the continued diplomatic row.

Unsurprisingly, there has been backlash against proposals of this nature, with Facebook (responsible for the encrypted messaging app WhatsApp) stating that while they "appreciate the important work law enforcement does... weakening encrypted systems for them would mean weakening it for everyone".

The proposed laws have been, at least in part, modelled off the current United Kingdom law on the issue - officially known as the Investigatory Powers Act, but often derisively referred to as the "Snooper's Charter" - which is similarly designed to negate the "safe spaces" that encryption creates, which can be used by terrorist and criminal groups to communicate.
