The push by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton to bring the encryption bill to a vote before Parliament rises for the year is facing an obstacle, after Senate president Scott Ryan raised the possibility that powers in the bill could conflict with parliamentary privilege.

American cryptography fellow Riana Pfefferkorn has questioned what end the Federal Government's encryption bill is trying to achieve, asking whether the ends of keeping crime under control could not be achieved by other means.
