The NSA's New Spy Center

Inspired by the recent thread about black boxes in cars... this is small potatoes compared to what's coming.

Enjoy the read. :pimpmofo:

This is why I suggested elbow add SSL security to keypicking, (https://ssl.keypicking.com)

If you don't feel like reading it, heres the bottom line:

1. You're fucked.

2. NSA is racing to build supercomputers to crack AES encryption (which is currently uncrackable without a quantum computer).

3. Every piece of telecom info sent and received from the US or inside the US (this includes phone conversations, TCP and UDP internet traffic, emails, satellite, wideband, radio, high frequency transmissions) are monitored and possibly stored.

4. This is not new, but the NSA does real-time traffic monitoring with keyword triggering. The shit you see in the Bourne series movies is real. If you say a trigger phrase on the phone or email/anywhere it will be automatically recorded and forwarded to the Pentagon.

5. You have ZERO privacy unless you are using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a keysize of atleast 256 bits (32 character password). There are other safe ciphers such as the One Time Pad which IS TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE to crack if used correctly. ALL of your phone conversations are unsecure. You'd need to be using an encrypted phone to be safe from eavesdropping. I highly recommend encrypting your computer files using AES256 or even encrypting your entire hard drive if you feel that suits your level of paranoia. The laws regarding the ability of the government to demand your encrytion keys or passwords is very situatonal. There have been cases where it was imposed upon the suspect to hand over keys, and other cases where it was seen as illegal.

6. You've got nothing to worry about if you've got nothing to worry about. Plain and simple........ for now. The concept of pre-crime isn't fully realized yet however I can definitely forsee this as reality within the next 10-50 years.

Based on this guy's experiments, it looks pretty effective... but you need to aim it well, obviously: how to zap a camera

Yep, it's being built on a corner of a US Army base that houses the 19th Special Forces Group. About 20 minutes from my house. I guess we just moved up on the list of strategic targets that certain foreign powers wouldn't mind seeing taken out.

A guy I know is one of the contractors working on it. He wouldn't say much about it, except for how robust the infrastructure is.

Re: The NSA's New Spy Center

sean connery and kz jones used it once in a movie to negate the cameras, I have tried it on fairly wide angle security cameras and found that it often can negate about half the screen but its very hard to negate the whole picture.
