+ - RFC 7258: Pervasive Monitoring Is an Attack->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "That's the title of RFC 7258, also known as BCP 188 (where BCP stands for "Best Common Practice"); it represents Internet Engineering Task Force consensus on the fact that many powerful well-funded entities feel it is appropriate to monitor people's use of the Net, without telling those people. The consensus is: This monitoring is an attack and designers of Internet protocols must work to mitigate it."
