The Most Recent NSA Leak Articles

by Rachel Baker on September 6, 2013

Here are four articles outlining a group of top secret documents from what Snowden took from the NSA. The files, from both the NSA and GCHQ, were obtained by the Guardian, and the details are being published today in partnership with the New York Times and ProPublica.

The big news is that the NSA and the GCHQ can get past most much of the internet encryption; and from the NBC article:

Because strong encryption can be so effective, classified N.S.A. documents make clear, the agency’s success depends on working with Internet companies — by getting their voluntary collaboration, forcing their cooperation with court orders or surreptitiously stealing their encryption keys or altering their software or hardware.
