Australia plans law to force tech giants to decrypt messages
http://www.sacbee.com/news/business/article161310228.html
The Australian government has proposed a new cybersecurity law
to force global technology companies such as Facebook and
Google to help police by unscrambling encrypted messages sent
by suspected extremists and other criminals. Prime Minister
Malcolm Turnbull said on Friday the law would be modeled on
Britain's Investigatory Powers Act, which was passed by the
British Parliament in November and gave intelligence agencies
some of the most extensive surveillance powers in the western
world.

The fastest way to speed adoption of secure end-to-end crypto
applications -- by terrorists, criminals, and eventually, all us honest
folks.
