The only reason for this to pass is to save money by not hiring the best private contractors possible/available. Treating our national defense as a sweepstakes is just lousy and lazy. Only one person will get compensated. Australias government is already requiring/requesting Backdoor access to encryptions. If Gov wants to be in control of data content and malware they should pay for it, and maybe trust some security experts/white-hat hackers to protect our country for large sums continuously. On salary? Would that be too easy? Our gov pushing away talent because computer scientists don’t take these deals seriously, nor should they.
