"The security of users' data is critical, which is why we've invested so much in encryption and fight for transparency around government requests for information," says Google CEO Larry Page.

 

I still believe that encryption does not complete the job. The ultimate security is relinquishing control of the encryption key and passing it on directly to the user. Very similar to what mega.co.nz already does. Of course, if you lose your password you lose your data but somewhere along the line the user has to be responsible for his/her own data.

En voila une bonne idée, au moins l'intention... Ceci dit, au vu des millions que cette histoire leur a, et va leur coûter encore, je comprends leurs motivations. Toutefois, je doute que cela suffise, car j'espère bien que PRISM aura donné une meilleure compréhension de ce que peut signifier la "Gouvernance de l'information", à ne pas confondre avec la "Gouvernance de l'IT"... ;)

Yeah, I've wondered about denial of service attacks and the cloud. Could cost you a bunch if you pay by the cycle . . .
