Australian Encryption Bill – An Exploitable Backdoor in the Startup Community
Being a member of the Five Eyes, the Australian government has officially introduced Australia’s Assistance and Access Bill 2018 to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security for consideration. This anti-encryption bill is expected to be a global paradigm for leaping over the obstructive internet surveillance. This being said, the bill is expected to agitate the startup community.

The Australian encryption bill seeks access, under the law, to decrypt any encrypted communication which is liable to contain any criminal activity. The major motive behind this encryption bill is to aid law enforcement in putting
the wrong-doers behind the bars. Therefore, Prime Minister Scott Morrison of the Liberal-National Coalition is determined to turn the bill into law by the end of the year.
