Greenwald Hits The Big Time

El Reg kindly links the keynote of Glenn’s at Choas Computer’s 30C3

In a keynote speech to this year’s Chaos Communication Congress in Hamburg, Germany, Greenwald claimed NSA and GCHQ analysts are infuriated that they cannot easily track or monitor airline passengers’ smartphones and other electronic gadgets mid-flight – implying that may be about to change.

Conveniently, US comms watchdog the FCC has given a thumbs up to in-flight mobile broadband, and the European Aviation Safety Agency is relaxing its rules on the use of electronics before and during flights – in theory, granting spies a direct pathway to personal computers and handhelds tens of thousands of feet above ground.

This is a secured communication. If you were not authorized to read this, we are very, very disappointed in you.
