Encryption laws and regulations in one of the Five Eyes: the case of New Zealand



An article I wrote with Philip McHugh on “Encryption laws and regulations in one of the Five Eyes: the case of New Zealand” has been published in the journal Information & Communications Technology Law. Below is the abstract:


This article examines the laws that apply to encryption in New Zealand. Specifically, it analyses the different types of law that constitute an encryption legal framework in the country, namely: export control, substantive cybercrime, criminal procedure, human rights, and information security and data protection. The article then utilises the encryption laws and legal framework to evaluate a proposal by the Five Eyes intelligence alliance to regulate the use of end-to-end encryption in messaging services. The article concludes that the proposal is incompatible with the country’s encryption legal framework.
