Like this One, 2014 will be Year of Edward Snowden (Computerworld, The Netherlands)

 

"All of the nearly 7 billion non-Americans have zero rights or protections in the eyes of the NSA (and U.S. law), and are therefore by definition suspect. ... In many other countries, feigned outrage is a major element. ... But the underlying sentiment is actually envy: we want this as well. In the Netherlands, another side of the coin is becoming clear: jealousy. ... While 2013 was the year of Snowden, 2014 may also be. And not only for reporting abuses, but for addressing them."

The Netherlands - Computerworld-Original Article (Dutch)

Home Affairs Minister Ronald Plasterk: Dutch citizens are suing him for approving the use of data on Dutch citizens illegally acquired by the NSA.

Background: Whistleblower Edward Snowden opened a Pandora's Box of Internet spying. The disclosures and consequences on the Netherlands, the U.S. and Europe have been substantial.

 

The NSA was always the most secret of America's secret, but since the beginning of June when the bomb burst, the world has been given a glimpse into the ultimate Big Brother organization in its clandestine attempts to eavesdrop on the rest of the world and wiretap as many communications as possible.

 

The key word: metadata. It is used as a pretext, but through metadata, it is possible to chart with surgical precision the activities, the comings and goings, and the social connections of people. Many find it "shocking," others "logical," but everyone's eyes have now been opened to the immense breadth and depth of digital surveillance.

 

Because this is also about economic espionage and wiretapping politicians and diplomats Cold War-style, combating terrorism is often a red herring. Although there is active cooperation with friendly nations, they are also monitored, as with the advanced antennae on the roofs of U.S. embassies.

 

PRISM , Tempora , XKeyScore ...

 

NSA used PRISM to intercept Internet and Webmail traffic on a large scale from dozens of U.S. tech companies, such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo and Dropbox.

This was done with or without direct access to servers, but in any event, on an enormous scale. It could, however, be even broader, by knocking directly on the door of the Internet service providers to ask for their telephony and Internet data. Using COTRAVELER, this includes the location data for millions of citizens at home and abroad, for the purposes of charting travel patterns and social relationships.

 

And then there is the widest trawl imaginable: tapping fiber optic cables, the arteries of the Internet, in strategic places, where especially the NSA's British counterpart GCHQ leads the way with the TEMPORA project. The infrastructure of the Internet is tracked into its capillaries by TREASURE MAP.

 

Backdoors within encryption standards

 

Analysts can dig into all that data with XKeyScore, the ultimate tool for the exploration of all that raw data. Encryption often makes it difficult for the NSA, but a solution has been found: BULLRUN.

 

http://worldmeets.us/images/NSA-Bullrun-graphic_graphic.jpg

 

This is done using not only supercomputers to crack keys, but by undermining encryption standards themselves with inherent weaknesses so that in effect a backdoor is created - and then making sure that a weak standard is widely used by, for example, the RSA [Dutch multinational insurance group], possibly by offering a sweetener.

 

The NSA revelations are welcome fodder for lawyers and politicians. Many projects and practices are formally sealed under U.S. law. But despite the wide powers of the Patriot, FISA, and Protect America Acts, and a secret court that works as a rubber stamp machine, the ravenous caterpillar remains unsatisfied. The NSA launched projects that it knew were illegal, with critical details on eavesdropping and blunders concealed to ensure continued authorization.

That is to say nothing of the rest of the world. All of the nearly 7 billion non-Americans have zero rights or protections in the eyes of the NSA (and U.S. law), and are therefore by definition suspect.

 

The initial reactions abroad are therefore in the form of outrage. NSA practices pose a serious threat to privacy and freedom of information, which are fundamental European rights.

 

Safe Harbor Agreement as leverage

 

One of Europe's trump card in the debate is the Safe Harbor Agreement, which under strict conditions, allows U.S. companies to process and store the personal data of Europeans. Except for the fact that there is absolutely no oversight and hundreds of companies have unjustly and illegally certified themselves with the Safe Harbor trademark. The European Commission demands from Washington that it tighten the reins when it comes to Safe Harbor. Meanwhile, many countries are brooding over ways to keep data within their borders, fueling fear of a Balkanization of the Internet.

 

[Editor's Note: U.S. Internet firms are obliged to respect the "Safe Harbor" scheme, which allows them to self-certify that they comply with European legislation on privacy. This enables them to transfer the data of European Internet users to servers situated in the United States. At the same time, they remain bound by the disclosure obligations imposed by the United States, creating an inherent contradiction].

 

 

Even in the U.S. homeland, disclosures have led to anger and fierce debate. Unlike elsewhere, however, there is a large and influential group in the U.S. which after every disclosure, routinely declares it's legality, necessity and that Snowden is a traitor.

 

Lawsuits, transparency and encryption

 

Despite the storm of complaints, requests for transparency and lawsuits keep on coming. In December, a Federal Court ruled in a case filed against the collection of telephone company metadata: This is an "almost Orwellian" practice that is "likely" in conflict with the Constitution. The effect of this "powerful" conviction is not yet clear.

Many tech companies take a public stand against mass surveillance. On the one hand, with several attempts to be more transparent about government data requests and wiretapping orders, and on the other, with improved security on their own networks, since even private cables between the data centers of the Internet giants like Google aren't safe from the NSA.

 

Washington tends to curb the unbridled hunger of the NSA by imposing data retention limits on ISPs. Nevertheless, concludes the European Union Advocate General, even this somewhat limited data retention violates fundamental rights.

 

In many other countries, feigned outrage is also a major element. The underlying sentiment is actually envy: we want this as well. Moreover, to a greater or lesser extent, there is already active cooperation between local secret services and the NSA. How intensively is a secret, but it is certain that services like the GISS [General Intelligence and Security Services] don't turn up their noses at U.S. data of dubious origin.

 

State Being Sued

 

In our country, the reaction has been similar to that in neighboring countries. But unlike the public outrage in Berlin and Paris, The Hague initially passed the ball to Brussels. However, it wasn't long before the GISS and DISS [Defence Intelligence and Security Service] came under attack for lying about their cooperation with the NSA. An investigation has begun.

 

 

A number of organizations and citizens will not wait for the slow-moving procedures to begin and have sued the state: for using NSA data illegally obtained and laundered for use by Home Affairs Minister Ronald Plasterk and his services, the civil lawsuit charges.

 

Big Data Gold

 

In the Netherlands as well, another side of the coin is becoming clear: jealousy. GISS and DISS can do a lot, such as indiscriminate interception of wireless communications. But such carte blanche doesn't apply to communications that run through cables. Thatís where, as the NSA has shown us, the Big Data gold lies.

 

The recommendation of the Dessens Committee therefore reads, despite (or because of) the Snowden revelations: give the Dutch secret service legal powers to tap cables. The regulator is giving its blessing in advance, and the GISS has already gotten started.

 

Raise and Address Abuses

 

Meanwhile, Edward Snowden is still stuck in Russia on a temporary visa after his flight from the U.S., via Hong Kong. But the revelations keep on coming. The flow over recent months involves only a fraction of the "top secret" documents leaked by Snowden. While 2013 was the year of Snowden, 2014 may also be. And not only for reporting abuses, but for addressing them.
