Micah F. Lee: 'Don’t Succumb to Security Nihilism'
The stories today in the NYT
on the NSA's ability to uncloak a lot of encrypted internet communications should not inspire you to "Give up and decide that privacy is dead," says Micah F. Lee of the EFF and Freedom of the Press Foundation
. "We need to stop using commercial crypto. We need to make sure that free software crypto gets serious security and usability audits. If we do this right we can still have privacy in the 21st century. If we give up on security because of this we will definitely lose." [micah.f.lee]
