Security

It is essential to protect the security of networked communications, for the good of citizens and businesses. Legislating against secure encryption is not only undesirable, but unworkable (not to mention mathematically impossible). We will remove any existing legislation requiring the creation of "backdoors" into encryption tools or technology platforms, in order to protect citizen and business data.

Surveillance

All communications (whether physical or digital) by individuals and groups, should be considered inviolably private and free from state surveillance (or surveillance by agents or companies working on behalf of, or at the behest of, the State) without a judicially approved warrant in relation to a specific threat.

Trying to ban encryption is pointless. This is a statement to that effect, really.

Uh-oh Votebot is confused. This has been open for 7 days and has 2 votes. I'm going to merge it.
