    browsing the lives of the public was exactly what they were up to 1 KARMA POLICE started in 2007 2008 so this is a long standing program having nothing to do with ISIS or current terrorist problems Their explicitly stated intent was to create the world s biggest surveillance engine Read The Intercept s report about the extent of that surveillance and see if it doesn t make you want to grab a pitchfork and follow the torches There is a dark cloud on their horizon though encryption The spread of encryption threatens our ability to do effective target discovery development says a top secret report co authored by an official from the British agency and an NSA employee in 2011 Pertinent metadata events will be locked within the encrypted channels and difficult if not impossible to prise out the report says adding that the agencies were working on a plan that would hopefully allow our Internet Exploitation strategy to prevail Remember this the next time your government starts talking about children and kidnap victims as the reason they need to compromise encryption Here from their own mouths is the real reason Footnotes 1 Strictly speaking KARMA POLICE is a GCHQ program and GCHQ is a sister organization to MI5 Raise your hand if you think that makes Parker s statement any less dishonest This entry was posted in General and tagged Privacy Bookmark the permalink Turing Complete Documents What We Really Mean Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation

  • Browsing Users’ Lives | Irreal
    BBC that MI5 is not about browsing the lives of the public He also says that technology companies have an ethical duty to cooperate with the government on encryption The idea that governments are not browsing the lives of the public is ridiculous on its face They are in fact doing just that as Edward Snowden s revelations demonstrate All this as I mentioned the other day reminds me of the recent contretemps over ad blocking Mr Parker and his colleagues here in the U S are asking us to trust them But why should we They ve demonstrated over and over again that they will abuse any powers we give them using tortured interpretations of existing legislation to justify wholesale surveillance of citizens Internet and phone activities Now like the advertisers they are whining that people are fighting back with strong encryption and other measures to safeguard their privacy And like the advertisers Mr Parker and his colleagues are arguing that it s unethical to resist their surveillance and that tech companies should help them make that resistance impossible But really this wouldn t be happening if they hadn t abused their authority to begin with Their current difficulties with encryption are not on the technology companies they re on them Footnotes 1 Oh the irony This entry was posted in General and tagged Privacy Bookmark the permalink You Can t Make This Stuff Up Turing Complete Documents Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Sebastian Christ on European Quotation Marks NoonianAtall on A
