Default NSA act like they are at war with ordinary US citizens

Itís almost like an arms race right now in the US between the spies and the ordinary people, who just want to be private and pay their taxes and do their jobs, Chris Kitze, founder of Unseen encrypted secure server, told RT.

RT: Reports have emerged claiming the NSA and GCHQ actually work to hack the codes protecting data like e-mail and bank records. Given the assistance of major service providers, how much data can the spies access?

Chris Kitze: Probably all of it. I think your listeners and viewers should assume that everything that goes through the NSA has been broken in real time. I think they want the ability to look back in time to see somebody and find a pattern. And so, theyíre looking at who this person was in contact with, what they said to that person, those kinds of things. The problem here in the United States is that itís actually against the law, itís called wiretapping. And you can do it when you want, but you canít do it on a huge scale. Like, apparently, theyíve been doing.

RT: Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on this, so what kind of information can the NSA or GCHQ get its hands on? Is it all just to listen-in on militantsí phone calls? Industrial Espionage?

CK: Absolutely. Itís not only industrial espionage, think about the value of how many people have access to this huge treasury of data. There are 1.4 million people in the US who have top-secret clearance. Are all those people angels? I donít think so.

So, you have the issue of who has access to this data. And Mr. Snowden was able to get quite a bit of it, so obviously, he is not alone there. There are at least thousands or probably tens of thousands of other people who do it. What is it valuable for? For political blackmail, itís hugely valuable. If you have all these private conversations from a political opponent, think what you could do in every election.

Think about what happens with businesses. Letís say, Iím working for Goldman Sachs as a banker, and thereís a company thatís going to be sold to the public Ė and the prices are going to get up to $20 a share tomorrow, based on the news. If I had that news privately through this kind of spy system, before anybody else does, how valuable is that! Thatís tens of millions, hundreds of millions dollars every day that can be made on stuff like that.

RT: Where does this leave both the American public and Internet users around the globe - do ways exist to protect data?

CK: Well, I think the first thing you can do, I mean one of the things, and Iíll toot my own horn a little bit here, is to use a service like Unseen, which is a secure system. Now, weíre in beta right now, so itís not perfect and weíre working a few things out, but the point is that if you use a major service Ė and I wonít specify them here, but all the major brand names Ė they are back doors for spying, lot of people have access to your data, itís all indexed by their systems, and itís done, supposedly, for ad targeting. Iím sure they do use it for that, but it also has other uses as well.

So, the issue is, you really have to move yourself away from those kind of free services, if you are concerned with privacy. Letís say, youíre a doctor, you have patients and you want to protect their medical privacy; this is very real issue. Weíve already had a few customers who are physicians and the reason theyíve done that is because of this. They want to learn more about how to protect their patientís privacy.

The other thing is about the habits an individual person can get into, which are, you know, donít make your password your name, or donít make a password ďpasswordĒ. Come up with something more complicated. What theyíre doing now at banks, for example, is requiring an upper-case, a lower-case letters, numbers, and special character Ė at least 8-character long.

So, by doing this you are just keeping people from breaking in, just using the easiest ways. Now, breaking encryption is one thing. Thatís actually fairly difficult. Guessing someoneís password is something a high-school kid can do. So itís not like something the NSA has to do. And, of course, the first thing the NSA is going to try, if they want to get into your stuff, is just to go through what every high-school kid does Ė easy passwords. And you know, donít make it ďone-one-one-oneĒ Ė thatís the number one rule.

RT: Major Internet companies assure their users that their private information is secure. Can they still make that claim?

CK: Well, my understanding of the laws is that they limit in the US, but they get around it by having the British come and spy around the US and then they just trade data with the British. So, this is basically something that is completely worldwide and you should assume that if youíre anywhere on the wire and youíre using something electronic, then someone is listening Ė unless you have some kind of very strong encryption. And even then you still have to be very careful. People Iíve talked to say, the only thing we can trust right now is face to face communications.

But I think itís going to get a little bit bothersome. The more people use encryption, it becomes more difficult to use this giant drag net that they are using to catch every fish in the ocean. At some point, there are more people coming on the newer, stronger encryption Ė and they donít have enough superfast, quantum or other types of computers to brake all the stuff. So, I think that itís almost like an arms race right now between the ordinary people, who just want to be private and pay their taxes and do their jobs, and be a contributing member of society, and the spies. And the real question is why are they spying on everyone? What are they afraid of? And when you look at the New York Times article that came out today, the code name for this project is ďBull, runĒ. Thatís a battle from the US civil war. So, my question to the NSA is, why do they feel that you are at war with the ordinary citizens of the United States? Thatís the question.

ďEither you are going to do politics, or politics is going to do you!Ē
Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times.
Good times create weak men. Weak men create bad times.
ďThe future has several names.
For the weak, it is impossible; for the fainthearted, it is unknown;
but for the valiant, it is ideal.Ē
