Police Operation Ironside – What are the Implications?

Tech & Sec Weekly


We speak with Dr John Coyne, Head of Strategic Policing and Law Enforcement at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.

A cyber sting three years in the making culminated last week when the Australian Federal Police (AFP) executed hundreds of search warrants in Australia-wide raids.

Dubbed Operation Ironside, the AFP joined the FBI to harness an encrypted app called ANoM and feed it into underworld circles worldwide.

Since 2018, the AFP has been reading the presumed secure ANoM messages that resulted in Monday’s raids. With state police agencies, the AFP arrested 224 people on 526 charges. Simultaneous raids occurred around the world.

We discuss what may be the implications of such an operation – not just on organised crime but also on the future of policing and trust in encryption capabilities.
