10.01.10 EFF: “government-mandated back doors” in communications systems would be a “recipe for disaster.”
A digital rights group expressed concern on Monday over reports that the Obama administration is drawing up legislation to make it easier for US intelligence services to eavesdrop on the Internet.
The New York Times reported Monday that the White House intends to submit a bill to Congress next year that would require all online services that enable communications to be technically capable of complying with a wiretap order.
The Times said it would require encrypted email transmitters like BlackBerry, social networks like Facebook and services like Skype to provide the capability to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages.
Seth Schoen, staff technologist at the San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), said requiring “government-mandated back doors” in communications systems would be a “recipe for disaster.”
“Throughout the 1990s, EFF and others fought the ‘crypto wars’ to ensure that the public would have the right to strong encryption tools that protect our privacy and security — with no back doors and no intentional weaknesses,” Schoen said in a blog post.
“We fought in court and in Congress to protect privacy rights and challenge restrictions on encryption, and to make sure the public could use encryption to protect itself,” he said.
“For a decade, the government backed off of attempts to force encryption developers to weaken their products and include back doors, and the crypto wars seemed to have been won,” Schoen said.
“Now the government is again proposing to do so, following in the footsteps of regimes like the United Arab Emirates that have recently said some privacy tools are too secure and must be kept out of civilian hands,” he said.
“Intentionally weakening security and including back doors is a recipe for disaster,” Schoen said. “‘Lawful intercept’ systems built under current laws have already been abused for unlawful spying by governments and criminals.
“Trying to force technology developers to include back doors is a recipe for disaster for our already-fragile online security and privacy,” Schoen said.
“It takes a page from the world’s most repressive regimes’ Internet-control playbook. This is exactly the wrong message for the US government to be sending to the rest of the world,” he said.
The Times said federal law enforcement and national security officials are seeking the new regulations because extremists and criminals are increasingly communicating online rather than using phones.
“We’re talking about lawfully authorized intercepts,” Federal Bureau of Investigation general counsel Valerie Caproni told the newspaper.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

More then likely a moment of Déjà vu (pronounced /?de zah vu?/ ( listen) DAY-zhah VOO; French: [de?a vy] ( listen), meaning “already seen”, from Greek “para,” “near, against, contrary to” + “m?m?,” “memory”), is the experience of feeling sure that one has witnessed or experienced a new situation previously (an individual feels as though an event has already happened or has happened in the recent past), although the exact circumstances of the previous encounter are uncertain. The term was coined by a French psychic researcher, Émile Boirac (1851–1917) in his book L’Avenir des sciences psychiques (“The Future of Psychic Sciences”), which expanded upon an essay he wrote while an undergraduate. The experience of déjà vu is usually accompanied by a compelling sense of familiarity, and also a sense of “eeriness,” “strangeness,” “weirdness,” or what Sigmund Freud calls “the uncanny.” The “previous” experience is most frequently attributed to a dream, although in some cases there is a firm sense that the experience has genuinely happened in the past.
The experience of déjà vu seems to be quite common among adults and children alike. References to the experience of déjà vu are found in literature of the past, indicating it is not a new phenomenon. It has been extremely difficult to evoke the déjà vu experience in laboratory settings, therefore making it a subject of few empirical studies. Certain researchers claim to have found ways to recreate this sensation using hypnosis.
Do you remember what Morpheus said about Déjà vu in the Matrix?
By the way do you know who the real Morpheus was? (pronounced /?m?rfi?s/ or /?m?rfju?s/; Greek: , Morpheus, or Morpheas, “shaper [of dreams]“) in Greek mythology is the god of dreams, leader of the Oneiroi. Morpheus has the ability to take any human form and appear in dreams. His true semblance is that of a winged daemon, imagery shared with many of his siblings.
