❄ “Designing Against Surveillance”

A Draft Paper Titled “Designing Against Surveillance”

I’ve posted a draft paper “Designing Against Surveillance”. It begins by focusing on three ‘blunders’ by which, in my view, the US Government has struck at the Net itself.

• NSA has actively worked to weaken, and evade, widely-used tools for encryption.
• NSA has contrived to install ‘back doors’ in software and
hardware.
• NSA has crafted ways to intercept Net traffic on an Olympian scale, with the stated purpose of exploiting communications content and metadata for intelligence purposes

and then continues with a broader critique of US Government practices … and some measures that could be taken in response.
