Forget Apple vs. the FBI: WhatsApp Just Switched on Encryption for a Billion People | W... - 1 views

  •  
    "With end-to-end encryption in place, not even WhatsApp's employees can read the data that's sent across its network. In other words, WhatsApp has no way of complying with a court order demanding access to the content of any message, phone call, photo, or video traveling through its service. Like Apple, WhatsApp is, in practice, stonewalling the federal government, but it's doing so on a larger front-one that spans roughly a billion devices."

Cotton squares off against Apple CEO | TheHill - 0 views

  •  
    Apple CEO Tim Cook was on 60 Minutes yesterday, reiterating his company's support for strong encryption. Today, Senator Tom Cotton called on Apple and other companies to install "back doors" for law enforcement agencies. I wonder if Tom Cotton has read the "Keys Under Doormats" report by Schneier, Rivest, Diffie, et al.

The government has protected your security and privacy better than you think - 3 views

  •  
    This article goes over America's security and privacy trade-off, especially after 9/11. The author argues that we have done an excellent job keeping a balance between these two approaches and, while actions such as the Paris attack may make us question if we should add more security, there is no reason to take away the privacy we have as since 9/11 we have been doing a good job of valuing both of these aspects.

Claims that encrypted communications put them out of reach was false - there had been no change in al Qaeda tactics. Also, author Howard points out that there isn't a clear dichotomy between privacy and security.

Surveillance Under the Patriot Act - 3 views

  •  
    Focusing on the consequences of the Patriot Act and how the US government upped the security on civilians after 9/11, this is a really nice graphic that gives a scary visual on the expanded powers of the national government in the name of security. It's from the ACLU, so this gives a pretty good perspective of, specifically, curbed liberties.
