Tech Group Issues Recommendations for Australian Encryption Law


A group made up of the Communications Alliance, Australian Industry Group, Australian Information Industry Association, Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association, Digital Industry Group Inc, and Information Technology Professionals Association recently issued a list of changes they wish to make on Australia’s encryption laws.

The list included a number of Labor’s amendments which had previously been dropped, including judicial consent for warrants, and the removal of the definition of systemic weakness.

In particular, the group said that the terms ‘systemic weakness/vulnerability’ and ‘target technology’ cannot be adequately defined since such they are difficult to understand, ambiguous and are significantly too narrow.
