Public-key cryptography pioneer Whitfield Diffie has poured scorn on former Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull over the latter's comment that "the laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia" made in the run-up to the introduction of the encryption bill in Parliament last year.
The Australian Greens have taken aim at the government's encryption law again, calling for its repeal and claiming that it will have "significant, unintended consequences" as Australian-based encrypted messaging services are dumped in favour of other means of communication.
Custom software development firm ThoughtWorks has rejected the Federal Government's assertion that it is not interested in breaking encryption, pointing out that the encryption law passed in December has "the direct and inevitable consequence of compromising the integrity of cryptographic systems".
