It's not just the National Security Agency. The NSA 's British relative, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), also secretly collects and stores a vast trove of global communications through a surveillance program called Project Tempora, a report in The Guardian revealed Friday. The GCHQ monitors the world's phone and Internet traffic, including calls, emails, Facebook messages and browsing history by tapping directly into transatlantic fiber optic cables that land on the shores of the UK, The Guardian reported, sourcing more documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden .

We might live in an age of persistent and pervasive surveillance. The recent revelations about the secret National Security Agency programs aimed at collecting vast amounts of data on Americans and foreigners seemingly confirm what tinfoil-wearing netizens have feared for years: They're watching us; technology has turned against its users. Amidst prying eyes, a small but growing group of hackers and programmers is working on applications that use cryptography — the science of creating techniques to hide data and render it readable only to intended recipients — to fight surveillance and give regular citizens access to what was once only reserved to computer experts.

In August, Ladar Levison, the founder of Lavabit — the email service provider allegedly used by Edward Snowden — decided to shut down the entire company rather than comply with a broad surveillance request . A few hours later, spooked by Levison's extreme move, private communications startup Silent Circle abruptly and preemptively shut down its own email service, too.

Now, almost three months later, Lavabit and Silent Circle will announce their plans to join forces and launch Dark Mail, a new secure, encrypted and peer-to-peer email system more resistant to government surveillance. They're calling it the "Dark Mail Alliance." "It's time to build a new email protocol that is secure by default, because we can't trust the Internet anymore, we can't trust governments anymore ," said Levison in an interview with Mashable . "So we need to build a new system that is resilient to that kind of … [Read more...] about Email Providers Build Service to Protect Your Inbox From the NSA

Ara Wagoner 1 Mar 2021 0 Source: Samsung Almost two months after debuting at CES , Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook 2 is out in stores now. Samsung tried to rein in the extravagance and the premium price tag from the original Galaxy Chromebook and instead gave us a mid-range Chromebook in a premium package in this second edition.
