NSA-proof encryption exists. Why doesn’t anyone use it? | Wash post

NSA-proof encryption exists. Why doesn’t anyone use it? | Wash post | Why.do | Scoop.it

Computer programmers believe they know how to build cryptographic systems that are impossible for anyone, even the U.S. government, to crack. So why can the NSA read your e-mail?

 

Last week, leaks revealed that the Web sites most people use every day are sharing users’ private information with the government. Companies participating in the National Security Agency’s program, code-named PRISM, include Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft.

 

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. During the 1990s, a “cypherpunk” movement predicted that ubiquitous, user-friendly cryptographic software would make it impossible for governments to spy on ordinary users’ private communications.

 

The government seemed to believe this story, too. “The ability of just about everybody to encrypt their messages is rapidly outrunning our ability to decode them,” a U.S. intelligence official told U.S. News & World Report in 1995. The government classified cryptographic software as a munition, banning its export outside the United States. And it proposed requiring that cryptographic systems have “back doors” for government interception.

 

The cypherpunks won that battle. By the end of the  Clinton administration, the government conceded that the Internet had made it impossible to control the spread of strong cryptographic software. But more than a decade later, the cypherpunks seem to have lost the war. Software capable of withstanding NSA snooping is widely available, but hardly anyone uses it. Instead, we use Gmail, Skype, Facebook, AOL Instant Messenger and other applications whose data is reportedly accessible through PRISM.

 

And that’s not a coincidence: Adding strong encryption to the most popular Internet products would make them less useful, less profitable and less fun.

 

“Security is very rarely free,” says J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan. “There are trade-offs between convenience and usability and security.”

KevinLouis's insight:

Since the day humans started bringing their progenies to the world, we all take birth without clothes. We do even now and will continue to be the same. However, whether we should wear clothes or not was decided only when Adam ate that prohibited fruit of knowledge. Well, that’s a fact supported by religion only, while many people may consider it bogus. However, that surely doesn’t mean we can negate the fact altogether, since it’s only the sense that makes us wear clothes. Otherwise, why animals don’t bother wearing clothes?

Basically the fat admirers have a fetish for fatty women. It has been observed that they also like super skinny girls. This contradiction in choice is quite bizarre.

There are people who have affairs before marriage, and then there are people – men or women – who go on with extramarital affairs, sometimes more than one. They say this tendency is more in men than women.

Internet explorer isn’t as light and user-friendly as it competitors, namely Firefox and Chrome, are. Moreover, any type of a freeware will mostly install a toolbar on Internet Explorer, which make it even slower.
