Submission + - Time For X-No-Wiretap HTTP Header->

Freshly Exhumed writes: A security blogger, acknowledging that the NSA methodically ranks communications on the basis of their “foreignness” factor to determine candidacy for prolonged retention proposes, is proposing '...an opportunity for us on the civilian front to aid the NSA by voluntarily indicating citizenship on all our networked communications. Here, we define the syntax and semantics of X-No-Wiretap, a HTTP header-based mechanism for indicating and proving citizenship to well-intentioned man-in-the-middle parties. It is inspired by the enormously successful RFC 3514 IPv4 Security Flag and HTTP DNT header.' When I saw the proposed crypto standard I was sold! BTW a shout out to my friends over there in the Caesarian section!
