Bazzwaldo said:I know very little about encryption but seeing it from a laymans position, I thought encryption was impossible to break unless:
1) you provide the access key
2) there is a backdoor built into the encryption system
So assuming you don't give up your key and there's no such a thing as backdoor access, how could a government enforce this law?
That is part of it I believe.
The Aus. gov. getting specific backdoor access to encrypted apps / messaging.
Which then places the backdoors at risk of breach by third parties.
Not to mention, you'd think gov. intel agencies would already be able to backdoor information with all the holes in Intel CPU infrastructure this or Cisco routing backdoors that.
A daft message telling the bad guys not to use the system from the outset, while also essentially admitting that the gov. don't have everything they want.
