Thank you vtcoger. That was an excellent read. In 1994 GN (Great Nordic) published "From dots and dashes to tele and datacommunications" to celebrate their 125th anniversary. It compliments the link you provided.

Are TLAs upset that they are unable to access the metadata and anything else OR are the TLAs able to access the metadata but are unable to de-crypt the payloads. I suspect the latter. TLAs solution - we'll shut the business down and let the business owners deal with the fallout.
Seems to speak well for the capability of PGP!
I think I would look suspicious crawling around on the floor trying to find the correct attachment point.
Does anyone know what adapter type may be required? Or is USB enough; not clear from the article :-)
Ohhhh - should only be discussed in a hacker forum.
I'm 60+. I am building out client data centers and the like and charging top dollar to have fun! What I have found is that there are still positions for those that understand the 'plumbing' that makes said data centers work. If the basic plumbing is screwed there is one very long term pile of pain for the client.
As you noted there is still a requirement for those that know and understand racking, stacking and cabling that is required to ensure successful DC operations. I know that I spend a significant amount of time at client sites helping youngsters understand the low tech that is necessary to keep the high tech palaces operational.
It seems obvious. But not necessarily to management or juniors.
Enjoy your time.
Give them more surveillance capability and they will certainly drown. The powers that be need more brain cases on the front lines to keep on top of the EXISTING data collection activities. Also I though that computers and data bases were supposed to help sort/organize the data. I guess that they have not got to that concept yet.
Friday night. Head crash in drive 2. Operator needed to access data on disk pack and moved disk pack to drive 3. Unable to read. Repeat drive 4 then drive 5 then drive 6 and finally the last drive in the string drive 7. Of course the disk packs originally removed to enable installation of crashed pack from drive 2 in each of the other drivers were replaced into their respective drives. The operator realized that there was a major problem! Finally called for help.
Evening destruction count: 6 X 50MByte disk packs and 43 heads across 6 drives
Pizza and lots of beer next day after premium hour call out to repair all the issues.
>Lowe's got hacked a few weeks ago. Could not understand why there may have been a a issue with Canadian stores. Went shopping there on the weekend. Found that I needed to swipe and sign on my credit card transaction. No Chip & PIN in their Canadian locations! Left the goods at the cashier.
Time to start hanging the CEO's and CIO's up by their bits using piano wire. No trial. No mea culpa. Straight to the bar.
The GPS receiver manufacturers took the cheap route for the most part when they designed their receivers. They never expected the spill over from ground based stations and designed the receivers with very a wide bandpass. Additional filtering would add a few bucks to the cost of a receiver. Don't add the filters and you end up with a crap device in the presence of extraneous signals.
Hmmm. On reflection that may explain various Landrovers with sat phones unexpectly ending up in a river ;-)
666624 would probably represent 10 Class B network ranges and 44 Class C network ranges which were mostly acquired through mergers and acquisitions. I suspect that the addresses sold to Microsoft do not include any of the the entire 47.X.Y.Z Class A range (16,777,216 unique addresses) that @Simon - 47/8 alluded to. Still more monetization to go!!
