Labour to oppose 'Henry VIII powers' being used to rewrite EU laws | Politics | The Guardian
[ no moderation, moderation is gone. Global Britain is here. 'indyref2 wil happen one way or another. no opposition and no say will infuriate Scots even more eventually ] It is expected that this will involve extensive use of “Henry VIII powers” – laws allowing ministers to change primary legislation (government bills) using secondary legislation (orders that go through parliament with little or no scrutiny).

Redaction error reveals FBI did target Lavabit to spy on Edward Snowden
A redaction oversight by the US government has finally confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s targeting of secure email service Lavabit was used specifically to spy on Edward Snowden.

Ladar Levison, creator of the email service, which was founded on a basis of private communications secured by encryption and had 410,000 users, was served a sealed order in 2013 forcing him to aid the FBI in its surveillance of Snowden.

Levison was ordered to install a surveillance package on his company’s servers and later to turn over Lavabit’s encryption keys so that it would give the FBI the ability to read the most secure messages that the company offered. He was also ordered not to disclose the fact to third-parties.

Investigatory Powers Bill: May defends surveillance powers - BBC News
Mrs May has said Britain's spies must continue to be allowed to hack into foreign computer networks, under so-called "bulk equipment interference warrants", as this was "a key operational requirement for GCHQ".
She told MPs that bulk powers had played a significant role in every major counter-terrorism investigation over the past decade, including seven terror plots foiled in the past 18 months, and in responding to the bulk of cyber attacks against UK interests.

Security Experts Warn of Orwellian Future in Apple Case | Re/code
[ all without a warrant ] Your Samsung smart TV or Amazon Echo might spy on you next if the government succeeds in forcing Apple to disable security protections on a smartphone to further the FBI’s investigation into the San Bernardino attacks. Security experts from Stanford, Harvard and Rice universities and independent researchers laid out this Orwellian scenario in a court filing today, supporting Apple’s fight against a court order to help investigators hack a smartphone used by one of the assailants in the mass killing. The group of seven experts argues that the judge’s order [...] disturbing possibilities for how law enforcement might turn everyday items into surveillance tools. //&!

Pando: At what point is the convenience of technology outweighed by the constant stress?
Yesterday, I wrote about new proposals to allow the government to trawl the social media accounts of visa applicants before allowing or denying entry to the US.  Specifically, I wrote about my relief, as a visa-carrying foreign worker, at having deleted my social media accounts last year. For all the myriad reasons the government might declare me unworthy of living here -- particularly under President Trump -- at least an old dumb tweet won’t be one of them. [...] Connected technology was supposed to make our lives easier. And of course it has, in countless ways. But what it doesn’t seem to have done is made our lives less stressful...

UK to send five ships to Baltic as part of Nato buildup against Russia | Politics | The Guardian
Britain will also contribute troops to a new 6,000-strong force that is intended to act as a deterrent [...] After years of steady military withdrawal from Europe since the end of the cold war, the US last week announced a quadrupling of military spending to $3.4bn (£2.35bn) to increase its presence in Europe as a counter to Russia. The UK contribution, though modest by comparison, is still significant given the extent to which the navy has been reduced after years of cutbacks.

The Pentagon has fired the first shot in a new arms race | Mary Dejevsky | Opinion | The Guardian
In a speech in Washington last week, previewing his announcement, Ash Carter said he would ask for spending on US military forces in Europe to be quadrupled in the light of “Russian aggression”. The allocation for combating Islamic State, in contrast, is to be increased by 50%. The message is unambiguous: as viewed from the Pentagon, the threat from Russia has become more alarming, suddenly, even than the menace that is Isis. [...] In the last months of his presidency, this detachment is ending. The additional funds for Europe’s defence are earmarked for new bases and weapons stores in Poland and the Baltic states. There will be more training for local Nato troops, more state-of-the-art hardware and more manoeuvres. [ ... + MH17 downing w Russian ground to air defense missile ]

Draft snooper's charter 'fails on spying powers and privacy protections' | World news | The Guardian
Theresa May’s draft “snooper’s charter” bill fails to cover all the intrusive spying powers of the security agencies and lacks clarity in its privacy protections, a parliamentary committee has said. The intelligence and security committee said the draft legislation published by the home secretary suffered from a lack of sufficient time and preparation. It was evident that even those working on the legislation had not always been clear about what it was intended to achieve, it said.

Can we really trust judges to protect reporters' confidential sources? | Media | The Guardian
Journalists won’t even be safe to talk email whistleblowers from a coffee shop [...] In stressing that the powers would not be used for mass surveillance, May said the onus would be on the home office to show necessity and proportionality. And who would decide whether that was justified? Judicial commissioners, she said. They would operate a “double-lock” authorisation process on intercept and bulk interception warrants in order to prevent intrusive snooping. [ old boys club with career interests? titles, pensions? ] But will this judicial oversight provide enough protection? That’s the key worry for journalists who now know that there is nowhere for them to conceal their communications with confidential sources.

Apple raises concerns over UK's draft surveillance bill - BBC News
The US-based firm has passed on its thoughts to a parliamentary committee scrutinising the legislation. It focuses on three issues: encryption, the possibility of having to hack its own products, and the precedent it would set by agreeing to comply with UK-issued warrants. The Home Secretary Theresa May said last month that the proposed powers were needed to fight crime and terror. [...] But Apple appears to be concerned that the bill's language could still be interpreted more expansively and force the creation of a so-called "backdoor" to provide the authorities with access. Apple argues that the existence of such a backdoor would risk creating a weakness that others then might exploit, making users' data less secure. [...] Overseas warrants A second area of concern relates to the issue of "extra-territoriality". Existing British legislation - and the bill - maintain that companies need to comply with warrants for information wherever they are based and wherever the data resides.

[ Der Heuhaufen wird immer groesser. Aber wir brauchen die informationen ueber die Nadeln und die Operativen Kapazitaeten. ] Die Terroristen von Paris: Alles unter den Augen der Behörden? Der Drahtzieher der Paris-Attentate konnte sich monatelang vor den Anschlägen erstaunlich frei innerhalb Europas bewegen, seine radikalen Ansichten waren den Behörden zum großen Teil bekannt. Trotzdem griff niemand ein. Drei Wochen nach den Anschlägen verdichtet sich der Eindruck eines Versagens der Sicherheitsbehörden, an dem auch verschärfte Überwachungsgesetze nichts geändert hätten. //&!

Theresa May accused of rushing surveillance bill through back door | Politics | The Guardian
Home secretary gives committee three weeks to study ‘snooper’s charter’, despite having ruled out fast-tracking it after Paris attacks [...] The joint committee that scrutinised the previous “snooper’s charter” bill – the draft communications data bill – in 2012 sat for five months and held 13 public witness sessions over a six-week period. It also took evidence in private from the security services. //&! bit.ly/1lkbLjn - State computer hacking The bill gives powers for security services to hack in to phones, computers and networks worldwide in interests of national security.

Defence review: PM could send 10,000 troops on to streets - BBC News
Trident - about 31bn // https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deterrence_theory - Up to 10,000 troops could be deployed on to British streets in the event of a Paris-style attack, David Cameron has said, as he announced plans for an extra £12bn for military equipment. The PM also said two 5,000-strong "strike brigades" would be created, as it was revealed the cost of renewing Trident could increase by £6bn. [...] the government's £178bn defence spending plans for the next decade // Comment: The extra £12bn going to the Ministry of Defence of course comes at a cost to other departments. Every penny that goes there has to come from somewhere else, and the depth of the cuts elsewhere will be revealed by George Osborne on Wednesday. Welfare, the police, and support for business are all likely to be hit. [...] what ground forces exist in Syria to take and hold land where IS is destroyed? Billions of pounds of new British military kit can't answer that. [ Drones and Bombs don't replace boots ]

Terror: Wer sind "die", wer sind "wir"? - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Worthülse "unsere Werte" [ trotztem bleibt es, jeder fuer sich ] "Unsere Werte", diese Wendung ist derzeit äußerst beliebt - und gefährlich. Denn sie suggeriert Einigkeit, wo keine ist. Das muss und darf nicht so bleiben. [...] "Unsere Werte". Diese Wendung ist seit den Anschlägen en vogue. "Wir geben unsere Werte nicht auf", schrieb die "Frankfurter Rundschau" und änderte die Überschrift später in "Die Freiheit nicht aufgeben". "Wir werden unsere Werte verteidigen!", formulierte "Der Westen", als würden die Redakteure gleich einen halben Tag frei machen, um selbst zu den Waffen zu greifen. //&!

Überwachung in Großbritannien: Neues Gesetz vorgestellt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Werbekampagne hat sich gelohnt. Am heutigen Mittwoch veröffentlichte Innenministerin Theresa May einen Gesetzentwurf (hier als PDF), der britischen Geheimdiensten noch mehr Macht verspricht. Die Spione können, sobald die sogenannte Investigatory Powers Bill vom Parlament verabschiedet wird, ganz legal das tun, was sie bislang ohne solide rechtliche Grundlage machten. Gleichzeitig sagte Innenministerin May, sie wolle die Aufsicht über die Geheimdienste stärken. [...] Theresa May betonte im Parlament, dass es nicht darum gehe, den gesamten Browserverlauf zu speichern, sondern nachvollziehen zu können, mit wem Verdächtige kommunizieren.

Most tech companies are against it for privacy reasons, but apparently Facebook is working behind the scenes to make sure it passes. [...] Facebook’s chief Senate lobbyist, Myriah Jordan, worked as General Counsel for CISA's sponsor, Senator Richard Burr, right up until taking the job at Facebook. On her lobbying disclosures she lists “cybersecurity” as one of the issues she's been discussing with senators.

[ this is just show: https://wikileaks.org/nsa-germany/selectors.html // look at cable gate. what officials wrote and what was said in-front of cameras and press. ] Cameron said the two nations had signed a “high-level security dialogue” on cybercrime, aimed at stopping attacks on companies either to gain access to intellectual property or confidential information or to disable systems. The deal mirrors one agreed between China and the US last month, but which the American monitoring group CrowdStrike believes was violated almost immediately. GCHQ has reported “disturbing” levels of cyber-attacks on British companies, which are thought mostly to originate in Russia and China. The agreement is the first time that Britain and China have committed to work together on cybersecurity.
