bigbrotherwatchingThe news has been filled with pieces about how your internet, telephone and email traffic is being monitored by the NSA. It’s called PRISM. That’s not an acronym, but a descriptive moniker according to Steve Gibson. A prism splits light into its spectrum; PRISM splits the light on fiber optic cables into two paths – one to the internet router and the other to the NSA data collection facility.

Security Now! podcast, Episode 408, “The State of Surveillance (How the NSA’s PRISM program works.),” is a must listen for everyone. Here’s why, in Steve’s own words:

Leo and I remind our listeners that we just had another Microsoft Patch Tuesday. Then I detail and carefully lay down a solid foundation of theory of the operation of the NSA’s PRISM program. This explains EVERYTHING about what the NSA is doing, and how. I even explain how and why the program got its name.

Big Brother is Watching You! The Thought Police aren’t far behind.
