In a Five Eyes ministerial meeting in late August, the governments of the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand put forward a number of proposals that focus on national security, including a stronger stance on encrypted messaging.

Established some time during World War II, Five Eyes is an umbrella agreement between the five aforementioned countries that allows for the free sharing of intelligence and information for the sake of national security in each nation.

With the intention of countering terrorist threats and other high-level crime, the new proposals put forward at the meeting indicate a stronger stance on online security – specifically, the use of backdoors.
