The EFA wants all political parties in Australia to support encryption which is becoming a bigger and bigger issue in the modern era. Attempts that try to crack encryption are a huge threat to personal safety and this might ultimately lead to a threat to national security. Eventually, not having encryption might lead to threats of human rights.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lobby group Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA) has called on all political parties to support encryption and privacy technologies,
  • Attempts to undermine encryption and other privacy technologies represent a fundamental threat to the safety and privacy of all users of digital technologies, the EFA says
  • EFA believes that any moves to undermine encryption in the name of ‘national security’ are fundamentally misguided
