Legal Advisor Rajesh De Discusses the PRISM Of NSA

Following Edward Snowden's reports on the National Security Agency (NSA), revealing its Internet surveillance scheme, all big tech companies made sure to clear their names by denying any knowledge of or connection to such wrongdoings.

 

Mark Zuckerberg went as far as to call President Obama, and make a public post addressing his dissatisfaction and disappointment of the NSA's undercover surveillance. But how "in the dark" were these big companies, really?

 

As every story has two sides to it, Rajesh De, an NSA legal representative, decided to share NSA's version yesterday. The new revelations were expressed in front of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. According to De, all leading tech companies like Google, Facebook and Yahoo! were in on the activities from the very beginning.

De confirmed that, not only were they well aware, but also in full cooperation with the collecting of communications and related metadata through the PRISM programme. De explains, "PRISM was an internal government term that as the result of leaks became the public term," making it a "compulsory legal process, that any recipient company would receive."

 

The companies may not have been acquainted with the name PRISM, but were undeniably informed of the activities behind this name, as they were bound by law to comply. Aside from using PRISM, and collecting data directly from companies, the NSA used what is known as "upstream" collection, where data is taken from traffic across the Internet.

 

The implications of these revelations have been quite drastic. The tech firms, on the one hand, have been denying and reassuring the public of their non-involvement. On the other hand, however, and standing its ground, the NSA is protecting its honour and respectability--which have been brutally challenged of late.
