Submission + - The NSA and Snowden: Securing the All-Seeing Eye (acm.org)

ChelleChelle2 writes: Edward Snowden’s release of classified material exposing the existence of numerous global surveillance programs (obtained while working as an NSA contractor at Booz Allen Hamilton) has been referred to as “the most damaging breach of secrets in U.S. history.” Regardless of whether one choses to champion or condemn Snowden’s actions, it is apparent that the NSA needs to dramatically rework its security measures. In this article Bob Toxen, renown author of several books and articles on Linux Security, discusses the security practices that could have stopped Snowden. Equally interesting, he weighs in on the constitutionality and morality of the NSA’s spying on all Americans.
