In light of Australia's anti-encryption, this is an important message from @signalapp@twitter.com

It's not enough for services to state they decline to add a backdoor. It should be practically impossible to do so. Based on their architecture and verifiable by public source code.

@comzeradd It seems like they've come up with a decent process for determining what constitutes a "systemic weakness" at this point, but it's dependent on the company's pushing back. Of course, that's always the case since companies could be pressured into cooperating even without a law.

IIUC a company can appeal and the final decision is made by a retired judge and a subject matter expert. I'm trying to figure out I'd this is enough.

@comzeradd that's why I use Signal and avoid Whatsapp. You know Facebook is already working on ways to comply with that stupid law.

@comzeradd this doesn't actually mean much because they can still backdoor iOS devices.
