ANALYSIS The Australian Government has left open the door for enforcement agencies to use specific cracks to gain access to encrypted communications on specific devices, given the language it has used in a draft of a new cyber law.
Telecommunications and Internet companies and makers of digital devices will face fines of up to $10 million if they do not help law enforcement agencies gain access to data needed for investigating terrorism offences, according to a new draft law revealed on Tuesday. Individuals will face fines of up to $50,000.
A group of 17 companies and organisations has signed an open letter asking the Australian Government not to promulgate a law forcing technology companies to decrypt secure communications for the purposes of law enforcement.
