Australia just made Man-In-The-Middle attacks required by law. They call it "the ghost" and every connection has to be open to the government.

Good luck with that.

I live in Australia. I have created encryption technology which cannot be broken - ever; and social networking software with E2EE where the users control not only the keys, but also the *algorithms*. It's physically impossible for me or anybody else to backdoor your encryption. It's also trivial to provide the same basic ability to other fediverse software.

There is also an Australian law which forbids me from discussing encryption technology with people from other countries (quite stiff penalties).

Anyway this entire body of work is available to anybody in the world right now and it's equally impossible for me to take it back. The only thing that has changed is that I can no longer help you. It's up to you to get smart and I would suggest that you need to do it quickly.
