    If you are not yet familiar with the scandal surrounding the massive NSA surveillance program codename PRISM start here (The Guardian) or here (The Washington Post).

    The exposure of the NSA's secret PRISM program--which harvests billions of pieces of data from many of the internet's most popular websites--sheds new light on the massive supercomputer and data storage facilities recently built by the NSA.

    I recently came across this Wired.com article which discusses the Utah data storage facility and the Supercomputer recently constructed at an NSA/DOE facility in Tennessee. It seems logical that the PRISM and complementary programs which monitor fiber-optic cables and satellite communications dovetail with the NSA supercomputer and massive data storage facility capable of storing data collected through surveillance programs of this magnitude.

    What do you all think of the Wired article and the capabilities the NSA has acquired? What will this mean for the security of AES etc.

    With so many current NSA and PRISM threads here at Wilders, there's no need to open a new one. Search the topics and you'll find them.
