<nettime> VIDEO: Snowden, the NSA, and Free Software – Bruce Schneier and Eben Moglen


I briefly talked with Bruce after this event, and suggested that it was much better than the recent DC one. He heartily agreed. His essential theme is that while ultimately there is no real defense to targeted surveillance, but plenty that can be done to make bulk surveillance both impractical and uneconomic. As well as crypto protocols, software etc he emphasized the need to develop open hardware standards so that one can trust one's kit.

 I am still waiting for the Internet Archive to derive the ogv version, but it will come. The YouTube video has  "enhanced privacy" toggled on, thus no cookie. I do expect the SFLC to come up with a transcript, later in the week.

After Glenn Greenwald first received his stash of secret documents from Edward Snowden, one of the first people he consulted was security expert, cryptographer, and writer Bruce Schneier, who helped him review and digest the documents. A few weeks back we saw Bruce give a briefing on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, where he advised lawmakers to rein in the NSA, and the Internet community to pro-actively design countermeasures. On December 12 2013, as a follow up to his Snowden and the Future talk series Eben Moglen hosted A conversation with Bruce Schneier at Columbia Law School. They talked about what we can learn from the Snowden documents, the NSA's efforts to weaken global cryptography, and how we can keep free software tools from being subverted. The talk was webcast live via the Internet Society Chapters Webcast Channel, and video is below. Hopefully a transcript will be available soon.
