Submission + - NSA Versus Tor? It's The US Army Versus The US Navy (techweekeurope.co.uk) 1

judgecorp writes: The NSA's efforts to break anonymity within Tor are somewhat ironic as it's one government agency breaking the creation of another one. Specifically, NSA, a division of the US Army, is taking on an encryption scheme created by the US Navy, in an extension of the historic rivalry between the two services. Happily, Tor is so good that NSA only attacks where it believes it is onto something, so you can use it for most business privacy, or for civil rights actions that might offend a smaller government.

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
