This time last year, the Australian Labor Party waved through the government's encryption Bills, formally known as the Assistance and Access Bill, and threw out the line that it was to keep the nation safe. The Labor Party now says it will fix encryption laws it voted for last year, but legislation is unlikely to pass the House of Representatives. What are your thoughts on this proposed legislation and the implications it would have for citizens' privacy? Learn more:

EU raises eyebrows at possible US encryption ban

The growing battle over end-to-end encryption took another turn last week, when EU officials warned that they may not take kindly to a US encryption ban or insertion of crypto backdoor technology. What is your opinion on this issue? We are in favor of strong encryption. Learn more:

Why Adding Client-Side Scanning Breaks End-To-End Encryption

Recent attacks on encryption have diverged. On the one hand, we’ve seen Attorney General William Barr call for “lawful access” to encrypted communications,using arguments that have barely changed since the 1990’s. But we’ve also seensuggestions from a different set of actors for more purportedly “reasonable” interventions, particularly the use of client-side scanning to stop the transmission of contraband files, most often child exploitation imagery (CEI). What are your thoughts on client-side scanning and its privacy implications? Learn more in a great EFF article:

Explained: How New 'Delegated Credentials' Boosts TLS Protocol Security

Mozilla, in partnership with Facebook, Cloudflare, and other IETF community members, has announced technical specifications for a new cryptographic protocol called "Delegated Credentials for TLS." Delegated Credentials for TLS is a new simplified way to implement "short-lived" certificates without sacrificing the reliability of secure connections.
