Business breaches, celeb photo hack raise online privacy concerns | The Buzz | www.accessatlanta.com - 0 views

  •  
    The thing I found very interesting about this article is the discussion about ex-NBA owner Donald Sterling. Yes, his comments were horrifying, but he said things in the privacy of his home. I guess what I, and this article, are trying to say is that privacy is dead and all information is vulnerable.

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.

The Privacy Blog: Privacy, Security, Cryptography, and Anonymity - 4 views

  •  
    This blog is all about privacy, as the title suggests. The majority of the blog posts use actual examples, such as the Ashley Madison hack, in order to reveal important cybersecurity lessons. One particular blog post explains how Passages, a secure virtual browser, is a lot like hand sanitizer for the web. I thought that this blog was particularly interesting because it had a lot of relevant, unique examples about privacy and cryptography in the modern world.

These Harvard And MIT Kids Say They've Made NSA-Proof Email - 1 views

  •  
    These people were prompted to create a easy, secure email service. They incorporated in Switzerland as it has much more stringent privacy laws than we have in America.

    Great find! At some point this semester, we're all going to learn how to use encrypted email. We might try out a few different systems, including ProtonMail, and compare them.

This tool boosts your privacy by opening your WI-FI to strangers - 0 views

  •  
    Getty In an age of surveillance anxiety, the notion of leaving your Wi-Fi network open and unprotected seems dangerously naive. But one group of activists says it can help you open up your wireless internet and not only maintain your privacy, but actually increase it in the process. At the Hackers on Planet Earth conference…

After Paris, What We're Getting Wrong In 'Privacy vs. Security' Debate - 5 views

  •  
    This article discusses the faults in former deputy director of the CIA Michael Morell's statement that the use of encrypted apps made it difficult to stop terrorists. 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.

  •  
    This is the results of a Pew Research survey in May (of 2015) regarding Americans' opinions of the NSA, surveillance, national security, etc. This could be useful in the security vs. privacy paper, to look at the public opinion on these issues.

Online Privacy: Technical, Political, or Both? When it comes to encryption, there's solidarity in numbers - News - The Austin Chronicle - 1 views

  •  
    What really stood out to me about this article was that they said the NSA actually pays more attention to those people who use encryption. So, in order to protect ourselves and also avoid prying NSA eyes, we should encourage people to stand in solidarity with encryption. I thought this was really interesting because I always thought that encryption would undoubtedly make everything more secure, but here they're saying that it actually attracts attention (which isn't necessarily a good thing).

    When I was a kid, I read an issue of Superman in which he faces Batman's villain, the Joker. At one point, the Joker tells Superman that he's kidnapped all of Superman's best friends (Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and so on) and locked them inside lead-lined caskets, hidden throughout Metropolis. Since the caskets are air-tight, they only have an hour to live, and Superman can't find them because his x-ray vision can't see through lead! That's what the Joker said. Actually, since Superman can't see through lead, those caskets *stood out* when he scanned the city with his x-ray vision, and he rescued all his friends in short order. Same basic idea.

Unbreakable encryption comes to the U.S. - 2 views

  •  
    Although it doesn't directly deal with online privacy, I thought this was really cool. It is a new form of encryption involving sending a beam of two photons with only one of them acting as a "key." It could very well be the new method of securing privacy.

The 5 biggest online privacy threats of 2013 | PCWorld - 6 views

  •  
    This article opened my eyes to many things, such as how many cookies can be stored on your computer from not going to many websites, how easy it is to track ones location, and how Facebook could easily recognize you in real life. It discussed ways that information is gathered and stored about someone online that I hadn't even thought of before and was very eye-opening.

    Facebook already knew you would feel that way about this news.

    Ladar Levison and William Binney each paid the price for a moral stand against the U.S. government. And your digital privacy is slightly better for it.

    One word of caution: This piece is from 2012, before we learned what the NSA was up to. It's quite possible that some of these mechanisms are now known to be insecure.
