Through a PRISM, darkly

by Naomi Colvin

I’m currently working my way through the many excellent presentations given at the 2013 CCC Congress (you can look through the videos yourself here). This talk, given by Kurt Opsahl, Senior Staff Attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation is a really good introduction to the US legal framework around the NSA’s activities. Once you’ve watched this, the next thing on your list should be Jacob Appelbaum’s To Protect and Infect, Part 2, which explains some of the most recent stories to emerge from the Snowden document cache.
