It reads like a spy novel with some neat technology references! In the affidavit Hanssen (aka "B") is portrayed as a computer expert with programming knowledge. The affidavit includes mentions of: the use of Palm VII's for communication, encryption techniques, track 40 floppy writing (?), a new NSA technique for surveillance (we aren't told what it is) and programs to automatically destroy computer data when it is compromised."
