NSA paid $10 million to put their backdoor in RSA encryption, according to Reuters report

NSA paid $10 million to put their backdoor in RSA encryption, according to Reuters report | Computer security | Scoop.it
When leaked documents claimed to have caught the NSA inserting bad protocols into the national standards board NIST, it raised more questions than answers. Why would the NSA go to the trouble of inserting a inferior standard into NIST's set of four, when most cryptographers would simply ignore the bad algorithm in favor of the others?

Ten million is no joke and it would coerce most people, which suggests that encryption on its own will not work. Pass the encryption key to the user and all is solved. Mega.co.nz already does this which is why I will always suggest them for storage needs.

Clyde Waterfront Green Network Strategy: A case study from LUC

Clyde Waterfront Green Network Strategy: A case study from LUC | Computer security | Scoop.it
The Glasgow and Clyde Valley Structure Plan developed the concept of a Green Network to bring economic, community, health and environmental benefits to the Glasgow conurbation.
The aim of this Green Network Strategy was to demonstrate how the redevelopment of the Clyde corridor could help create high quality and accessible green space in some of the least green parts of the city — serving areas of deprivation and poor health.

Interesting to  see what  you  can  get  up  to  as an  environmental  scientist - or can you?
