Hot US NET Control >Trump Signs NET Privacy Repeal Into Law=Our Freedom Has Gone Forever

The Chilling Effect of NSA Surveillance on the Open Internet

Snowden's NSA leak revelations are changing people's assumptions about online privacy, killing trust in web freedom

I fear the collateral damage the NSA's spying via technology will do to that technology. The essential problem is not the internet or internet companies or even the spies. The real problem is the law and what it does not prevent the American government from doing with technology, and how it does not protect the principles upon which this nation was founded.

The damage to the net and its freedoms will take many forms: users may come to distrust the net for communication, sharing, and storage because they now fear – with cause – that the government will be spying on them, whether or not they are the object of that surveillance. International users – properly concerned that they are afforded even less protection than Americans – may ditch American platforms. The European Union and other national governments, which already were threatening laws targeting US technology companies, will work harder to keep their citizens' data away from the US.

Technologists may find it necessary to build in so many protections, so much encryption and caution, that the openness that is a key value of the net becomes lost.

If we trust the net less, will we use it less? Will it become less of an engine for innovation and economic development? Will it be a diminished tool for speech and assembly among citizens?

If governments use this event as an excuse to exercise more oversight and control over the net, will that not then, in turn, reduce citizens' trust in the net and their freedom using it? Governments present themselves as the protector of our privacy, but as the NSA story demonstrates, governments present the greatest threat to our privacy as they have the means both to surveil us and to use our information against us.

And note well that governments' relationship with the net is necessarily influenced by the net's disruptive force on government: witness the internet's use in organizing protests against governments in Turkey, Brazil, Egypt, Tunisia, Iran, and more nations by the day. Isn't a weakened, controlled, distrusted net in governments' interests?

So far, much of the negative coverage and emotion in this story have centered on the technology companies alleged by Edward Snowden's leaked PowerPoint slides to have cooperated with the NSA. The Washington Post has yet to correct its contention that the NSA and FBI are "tapping directly" into the servers of internet companies, though that simplistic characterization has been soundly denied by Google, Facebook, and others.
The Associated Press has given a more nuanced and sensible interpretation of the slides, explaining that some Prism data is the product of warrants served on those companies, producing data from their servers that is delivered by file transfer, or disc in Google's case, and some is the result of apparent wholesale eavesdropping on internet fibre.

That tapping into the net's full flow of communications is far more troubling even than the US government's secret warrants. For a savvy description of how that can occur, listen to security expert Steve Gibson's podcast. I've yet to hear internet bandwidth providers (Level3, Verizon, et al) questioned as internet service companies have been about whether and how they are cooperating with the spies. That is a next phase of this story.

What the NSA is doing may be legal, made so by the Patriot Act. But even on Fox News, regular contributor Andrew Napolitano has questioned whether its actions and this law are constitutional. That is the key question Edward Snowden and company now put before us: what principles are being violated or upheld by the government's actions? That is the discussion we must have. I see these core principles at stake.

First, Privacy:

In the United States, first-class letters and parcels are protected from search and seizure except by warrant. That should be the case, but is not, for any private communication using any technology: other classes of mail, email, internet telephony, Twitter direct message, or means yet to be invented.

Second, the Balance of Powers:

The NSA is overseen by a secret court and gagged legislators.


Thus, save for Snowden's leaking, we the people are excluded from the information we need and the opportunity we deserve to keep our representatives and agents in check.

A third principle riding atop these is transparency:

The notion that government should be transparent by default and secret by necessity (and there are necessary secrets). Today, government is secret by default and transparent by force, whether from whistleblowers and journalists. When government threatens to torture the whistleblowers and prosecute the journalists who share information with us, then that puts a chill on speech and a choke on the transparency citizens depend upon to assure their rights and monitor their governments.

The first two are principles enshrined in the US constitution: in the fourth amendment that guarantees freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures; and in the structure of American government itself. The third is a principle whose value I have learned from the net and the power it gives any citizen to speak publicly; to find, organize, or join a public; and ultimately, to choose what is public and what is not. The NSA's actions and the laws that enable them – as well as some occasionally overblown conjecture around this – threaten to diminish the power and freedom of the net.

I worry that the damage is done.

Hot NET CONTROL? >Google's 427 Secret Meetings @ US White House

REVEALED: Google Staffers Have Had at Least 427 Meetings at the White House Over Course of Obama Presidency - Averaging More Than One a Week

  • The White House's close relationship with Google was highlighted in data published Friday
  • Records show 169 Google employees met with 182 government officials
  • Google's top lobbyist paid 128 visits to the White House since 2009
  • 'Of course' Google is a frequent guest, company responded in statement
Daily Mail UK, 23 April 2016


Newly compiled data reveals Google and its affiliates have attended meetings at the White House more than once a week, on average, since President Barack Obama took office.


Numbers crunched by the Campaign for Accountability and the Intercept show 169 Google employees have met with 182 government officials in the White House.

The meetings took place at least 427 times. The data used spans from Obama's first month in office in 2009 until October 2015, and includes government meetings with representatives of Google-affiliated companies Tomorrow Ventures and Civis Analytics.





Data shows Google employees visited the White House at least 427 times between the time Obama took office and October 2015


The Google employee with the most visits is the company's head of public policy, Johanna Shelton, who paid the White House 128 visits.





Johanna Shelton, pictured, is Google's top lobbyist. She paid 128 visits to the White House


The government's apparently cozy relationship with Google was brought up about a year ago by the;


Wall Street Journal.


In response to a story in the Journal titled 'Google Makes Most of Close Ties to White House,' the company responded: 'Of course we’ve had many meetings at the White House over the years.'

Google said topics discussed in the meetings ranged from patent reform, STEM education, and self-driving cars

& Internet censorship, smart contact lenses, and cyber security.


Friday's report in the Intercept came a week after Obama announced his support for a Federal Communications Commission plan that would make it easier for pay-TV customers to buy their own set-top boxes - a plan which an AT&T executive blasted as a 'Google proposal.'

'This will allow for companies to create new, innovative, higher-quality, lower-cost products,' the White House wrote in a blog post announcing the initiative.
END.

Hacker Trump Signs Internet Privacy Repeal Into Law

The US Feds Just Wiped Out Your Online Privacy…

AP. Posted: 11 Apr 2017






In a major setback to those who value their online privacy in the United States, last week the House of Representatives voted to grant Internet service providers permission to sell subscribers’ browsing histories to third parties.

The bill repeals broadband privacy rules adopted last year by the US Federal Communications Commission, which required ISPs to obtain subscribers’ consent before using their browsing records for advertising or marketing purposes.


Soon after, the Trump Administration officially announced its support for the bill, noting that the President’s advisors would advise him to sign it, should it be presented. Yesterday, that’s exactly what happened.

To howls of disapproval from Internet users and privacy advocates alike, President Trump signed into law a resolution that seriously undermines the privacy of all citizens using ISPs to get online in the US. The bill removes protections that were approved by the FCC in the final days of the Obama administration but had not yet gone into effect.

The dawning reality is that US telecoms giants including Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon, are now free to collect and leverage the browsing histories of subscribers – no matter how sensitive – in order to better target them with advertising and other marketing.


The White House says that the changes will simply create an “equal playing field” between ISPs and Internet platforms such as Google and Facebook, who are already able to collect data for advertising purposes.

The repeal has drawn criticism from all sides, with Mozilla’s Executive Director Mark Surman openly urging the public to fight back.

“The repeal should be a call to action. And not just to badger our lawmakers,” Surman said.

“It should be an impetus to take online privacy into our own hands.”

With the bill now signed into law, that’s the only real solution if people want to claw back their privacy. Surman has a few suggestions, including the use of Tor and encrypted messaging apps like Signal. But like so many others recently, he leads with the use of VPN technology.

As reported last week, Google searches for the term VPN reached unprecedented levels when the public realized that their data would soon be up for grabs.

That trend continued through the weekend, with many major VPN providers reporting increased interest in their products.

Only time will tell if interest from the mainstream will continue at similar levels. However, in broad terms, the recent public outcry over privacy is only likely to accelerate the uptake of security products and the use of encryption as a whole. It could even prove to be the wake-up call the Internet needed.
END.




Here is What You Can Do to Protect Yourself & Cover Your Data...






Congress and President Trump just approved a bill lifting restrictions imposed on US Internet Service Providers (ISPs) concerning what they could do with information such as your browsing habits, location data, and Social Security number. That's right, your online privacy is now for sale.

So what happens when this massive store of aggregated, location-specific customer data is up for grabs? We're about to find out, but the prognosis isn't good.
