NSA Reportedly Paid A Security Firm Millions To Ship Deliberately Flawed Encryption Technology

Reuters, Techcrunch.com, Arstechnica u.a.: Die NSA hat dem IT Security Branchenprimus RSA $10 Millionen bezahlt, um schwache Verschl├╝sselung zu promoten.
Reuters later reported that RSA became the most important distributor of that formula by rolling it into a software tool called Bsafe that is used to enhance security in personal computers and many other products. (…) The RSA deal shows one way the NSA carried out what Snowden’s documents describe as a key strategy for enhancing surveillance: the systematic erosion of security tools.
