that once stood as something a little odd (I explain below) has been confirmed by Todvalds Linus’s father, Nils Torvalds, a member of the European Parliament for Finland, in one of the sessions on the subject of control massive spying on U.S. Internet: the NSA wanted a ‘back door’ in Linux .
Recall that in September
news broke Torvalds was asked by the NSA to install a backdoor on Linux . Only knew that, and not in the best way: in the last LinuxCon North America, someone in the audience asked if the NSA had contacted him to include some backdoor on Linux, to which Torvalds said “no”, while nodding and smiling. That was it. Linus telling the truth …, how the mouth or head? Why so ambiguous response to such a serious issue?
Shortly after the above and at the insistence of the press with the news, Linus called “ignorant” who gave fuel to the existence of a backdoor on Linux , which is supposed mean an emphatic no … or the biggest lie of his life. However, Linus did not need to lie, though, it seems, could not be totally honest.
have everything in Falkvinge, the news portal of the Swedish Pirate Party leader. Whoever wrote the article is Christian Engström, Pirate Party member who was present at the said meeting, which can be seen in full on YouTube video. Although it is almost coming to the end (3:07:00) when speaking Engström and right behind him, Nils Torvalds (interpelaban a representative of Microsoft … and how).aligncenter” class=”wp-caption
In essence, yes, the NSA “he came” to Linus , to see what drew. Can you imagine the scene?: Linus white as lime …; … guffawing Linus, Linus NSA explaining what the software Open Source , which is why a kernel backdoor is very difficult to hide and why you do not need to lie.
Now, why did not explain all the words when asked, instead of trompe l’oeil? How delusional mood that yours? Or, as his father hints for possible legal pressure?
that you realize far reaching legal pressures in the United States, the founder of Lavabit was forced to hand over their encryption keys and mail service hide that fact to its users under threat criminal charges . In contrast, closed the service and their claimants countersued. How many people or companies would be willing to do the same?
In another vein, the NSA assists in the development of Linux , especially in the core areas of security, such as SELinux. Not believed to have tried to sneak anything out there, but several experts have been reviewing their contributions.
not know what.
