NSA Foils Much Internet Encryption

poptartx Re:And the crucial details.. missing (607 comments)

I agree. Ssl, https are based on certs bought, but most of the popular encryption techniques that "are not" cracked yet(256AES) where developed for the U.S. The reason it was created was for a governenment contract, this makes it validity skeptic. We need an strong encryption standard made for the masses by the masses. There is no money making ciphers for free. This is one of the most inportant issues we face as a people. Ofcourse the opposition will say if you have nothing to hide why do you need encryption. I answer them by saying, do you like that creepy feeling of someone looking over your shoulder while you read. I wish a project manager with some brilliant math friends would start work on a stronger cipher for the masses. There might now be a lot of money, but you would be loved.
