PRISM, non su Fox Crime

Prism NSA

Dallo scandalo scoppiato recentemente in US, oggetto il programma di controllo delle comunicazioni (PRISM) messo in piedi dalla National Security Agency, emergono due considerazioni importanti:

  1. sarebbe bello se tutto il software usato per l’analisi di questi big data venisse rilasciato in open source;
  2. alla NSA hanno bisogno di qualcuno che sappia usare (decentemente) powerpoint (non vi è traccia di tutta quella fantatecnologia trasmessa dai canali del titolo).

La vicenda è questa:

Documents: U.S. mining data from 9 leading Internet firms; companies deny knowledge
The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track foreign targets, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post.

Le slide sono qui.

Through a top-secret program authorized by federal judges working under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the U.S. intelligence community can gain access to the servers of nine Internet companies for a wide range of digital data. Documents describing the previously undisclosed program, obtained by The Washington Post, show the breadth of U.S. electronic surveillance capabilities in the wake of a widely publicized controversy over warrantless wiretapping of U.S. domestic telephone communications in 2005. These slides, annotated by The Washington Post, represent a selection from the overall document, and certain portions are redacted
