I never heard of her and her partner before. She used to work for MI5 (United Kingdom's counter-intelligence and security agency) and discovered several "irregularities" before deciding to blow the whistle. Since there are no slides, you can only download the video (100MB). After hearing the talk, I had two questions? Is it all true? And if most of it is true, are we really headed towards 1984?
- 21:30: Wikileaks (global defense of sources and press freedoms, circa now)
Wikileaks is a kind of anti-censorship wikipedia. I won't discuss much about it, the site explains it all itself. Some people might have read on the internet that the operational manual of Guantanamo bay got leaked onto the internet (at least the 2003 version). Apparently, this was done through wikileaks.24C3 talk video (100MB). Note, this does not apply to all smartcard implementations and might differ in other countries. This makes you wonder.
More to follow. In Part 4, I will include some more comments on the entire event and some interesting facts. Stay tuned.
