Australia not thrilled about crypto crackdown

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet Australia News: "US Senator
Judd Gregg has proposed tighter
restrictions on the use of
encryption software, which
scrambles electronic data and
hinders its detection, and has
called for international support.
Reports since the Septermber 11
terrorist attacks say that the FBI
believe such tools were used to
orchestrate the event.

Civil liberties group, Electronic
Frontiers Australia said it would be
opposed to any move by the
Australian Federal Government to
follow suit."
