    Is he referring to that failed 2016 plot by some unorganized wannabe terrorists?
    Did encryption play any role in that?

    EDIT:
    Actually, I don't even want to know...Going to just block the whole stupid country in all my incoming/outcoing firewall rules from now on

    Hey, maybe it's not to late to invest in Malaysia, Indonesia and/or New Guinea data centers :)

    If it's any help in terms of Schadenfreude, I'm from the UK. Beat that! The IPA has rather vague provisions for busting encryption, but potentially can be used that way.

    @mirimir - Perth is roughly equidistant between Singapore and Sydney, the distances are huge, so latency is an issue going anywhere outside jurisdiction from the east coast.

    I was just remembering that some "Australian" VPN servers are actually in Singapore. But yes, Australia is huge, and isolated.

    Reminds me of On the Beach :(

    @Minimalist - indeed, it's been obvious that the 5-eyes security services have been in undemocratic collusion for many years, and one of their techniques is to salami slice laws on a ratchet effect by exploiting political or terrorist acts in one jurisdiction as a model and justification for others to say - well they do it, so why don't we? These laws and land-grab never get reversed.

    Not a brave new world I want.

    The federal government and Labor have passed controversial new encryption laws. What do they actually mean?

    How generous to say that the service providers will be recompensed for their troubles! What they don't say is that the taxpayers are paying to have their own communication's security weakened.

    This **** bubble law is one whistleblower away from busting.
    And after the details of what kangaroo government wants big tech to exactly do to
    undermine encryption, there is no turning back ...
