A few days ago, I saw this tweet : “Just a reminder that it is now *a full year* since Schneier cited it, and the FOXACID ops manual remains unpublished.” It’s true. The citation is this: According to a top-secret operational procedures manual provided by Edward Snowden, an exploit named Validator might be the default, but the NSA has a variety of options. The documentation mentions United Rake, Peddle Cheap, Packet Wrench, and Beach Head-all delivered from a FOXACID subsystem called Ferret Cannon
Good essay by Molly Sauter: basically, there is no legal avenue for activism and protest on the Internet. Also note Sauter’s new book, The Coming Swarm .
Former NSA employee — not technical director, as the link says — explains how NSA bulk surveillance works, using some of the Snowden documents. Very interesting
