Document: FBI Surveillance Geeks Fear, Love New Gadgets | Threat Level | Wired.com
Each technology section includes a discussion of the potential challenges to #surveillance, but most of these discussions were redacted by the #FBI before releasing the document. The document covers #net_neutrality, #4G, public Wi-Fi, anonymity services like #Tor, and cloud storage and file-sharing services such as #Dropbox, #SpiderOak and #SugarSync.
In a show of irony, the document holds an uncharitable view of another cutting edge technology: an #Apple patent for a “killswitch” that uses voice and facial recognition to shutdown an iPhone or its data if the device detects that the person using it is not the rightful owner. The FBI calls Apple’s concept “Big Brother-ish”.
