Suecos sem privacidade na internet e telefone

Suécia aprova lei polémica.

Algo que não somos conscientes mas que afecta-nos a todos. Imaginem que as cartas enviadas pelos correios são abertas e lidas antes de chegarem aos destinatários, após o governo ter aprovado uma lei que legitima esta prática.

“The new law, set to take effect on January 1st, 2009, will enable the National Defence Radio Establishment (FRA) — a civilian agency despite its name — to tap all cross-border Internet and telephone communication.”

Philipp von Weihausen comenta algo interessante.

“Anyway, all of this really isn’t a scandal. It’s sad, wrong, and many other things. The real scandal, however, is that nobody is using email encryption. If we all wrote encrypted emails, good luck to any government agent trying to make out what we’re writing each other. We use encryption when buying junk off the internet, when doing online banking, even when checking in code into a version control repository. Why aren’t we doing email encryption?”

Lennart Regebro também desabafa no blog dele.

“I am so amazingly happy that I have moved from that country.”
