Theresa May’s crackdown on the internet will let terror in the backdoor | Alex Lee
The prime minister is on a warpath to increase mass surveillance and decryption – which can only weaken data security and put the public more at risk

Let’s get one thing straight: Theresa May is strong and stable. She is firm and unwavering in her stance to deliver her fantasy of regulating the internet and making it her own political playground.

May introduced the Investigatory Powers Act, aptly nicknamed the snooper’s charter, during her time as home secretary, and her time as prime minister has not changed her attack-dog stance on internet surveillance. After the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London Bridge, May continued on her warpath to decrypt the internet and make our data security weak and wobbly. As May stood outside Downing Street in the aftermath of the Finsbury Park terrorist attack on Monday, the prime minister announced that she would establish a new commission for countering extremism and once again, reiterated giving police and security services the powers that they need.

Google, not GCHQ, is the truly chilling spy network | John Naughton

Daily surveillance of the general public conducted by the search engine, along with Facebook, is far more insidious than anything our spooks get up to

When Edward Snowden first revealed the extent of government surveillance of our online lives, the then foreign secretary, William (now Lord) Hague, immediately trotted out the old chestnut: “If you have nothing to hide, then you have nothing to fear.” This prompted replies along the lines of: “Well then, foreign secretary, can we have that photograph of you shaving while naked?”, which made us laugh, perhaps, but rather diverted us from pondering the absurdity of Hague’s remark. Most people have nothing to hide, but that doesn’t give the state the right to see them as fair game for intrusive surveillance.

By now, most internet users are aware that they are being watched, but may not yet appreciate the implications of it

BAE 'secretly sold mass surveillance technology to repressive regimes'

Documents reveal official concerns that deal with countries including Saudi Arabia could put UK security in danger, says BBC

BAE, Britain’s biggest arms company, secretly sold mass surveillance technology to six Middle Eastern governments that have been criticised for repressing their citizens, the BBC has reported.

The sophisticated technology can be used to spy on a huge number of people’s emails and mobile phones, triggering accusations from human rights campaigners that it is being used to silence or jail dissidents.

Malcolm Turnbull calls on Labor to back Coalition's citizenship regime

New arrivals need to ‘join us as Australian patriots’, PM to tell parliament in national security update

Malcolm Turnbull will use a national security update to parliament to urge Labor to support the government’s proposed overhaul of citizenship requirements, arguing new arrivals need to “join us as Australian patriots”.

The government intends to press ahead with its new citizenship regime once parliament resumes on Tuesday for the last sitting fortnight before the winter recess.

George Brandis's salvo in cryptowars could blow a hole in architecture of the internet

Attorney general isn’t just proposing a backdoor into encrypted communications – it’s a giant sinkhole your backdoor fell into

In 1993 the US president Bill Clinton’s administration introduced the “Clipper chip” into America’s digital and consumer electronics. It was one of the earliest attempts to enforce a backdoor into digital products, and the first in what is known as the cryptowars, when the US government fought to control and regulate strong encryption.

The Clipper chip was a catastrophic failure. It’s a failure the attorney general, George Brandis, may find instructive, as he places Australia on the frontline of a new cryptowar.

How a crippling shortage of analysts let the London Bridge attackers through
It’s people, not computers, who can identify terrorists before they strike

Last Tuesday, in the wake of the latest terror atrocity to strike Britain, the former head of MI5 Dame Stella Rimington recalled just how primitive intelligence gathering used to be. Addressing a conference of security officials in west London – four miles from London Bridge where the terror attack had taken place three days earlier – Rimington recounted an anecdote about how her spy training in the 1970s involved infiltrating a local pub to eavesdrop on targets.

Over the four decades since then, intelligence gathering within Britain’s security services has evolved beyond comparison. Eking out a lead is no longer an issue – instead extraordinary volumes of information are relentlessly harvested electronically. The worry, according to experts, is whether they are acquiring too much.

What's in Theresa May's new anti-terror package?

The PM’s proposals suggest stringent restrictions including tougher Tpims, more deportations and sweeping new surveillance powers

Theresa May’s unveiling of a fresh package of measures to keep track of terror suspects clearly raises questions over whether it is designed to deflect potential headlines about MI5 and Home Office failures over the London Bridge bombers.

The package does however fill in some details in her “enough is enough” four-point plan to tackle extremism in Britain by hinting at a series of steps to more effectively keep track of and control terror suspects in Britain. Taken together they add up to an attempt to restore some of the more restrictive elements of control orders to the existing regime of terrorist prevention and investigation measures (Tpims).

On Facebook, even Harvard students can’t be too paranoid | Tim Dowling
Now computers spy on us and typing speeds betray emotions, it’s touching that the smartest students in the land still think they can offend in private

The other day I noticed that the little green light next to the camera built into my computer screen was on. It’s perfectly possible that I had recently used some app that required the camera, and forgotten about it; but I couldn’t find a way to turn it off. It’s unlikely anyone was really watching me pretend to work, but my computer definitely was.

Tim Farron: security services need more resources – not more powers

Lib Dem leader attacks police funding cuts made by Theresa May, but warns that terror attacks should not lead to more censorship or invasions of privacy

Tim Farron, the Liberal Democrat leader, said police and security services were suffering from a lack of resources, rather than a lack of powers, during a BBC Question Time programme in which he was challenged over his party’s plans to roll back surveillance.

Farron said he firmly believed that terror attacks, such as those in London and Manchester over the past weeks, should not motivate an increase in censorship or invasions of privacy.

EU judges may be asked to rule on legality of UK surveillance powers

Fresh court challenge by privacy campaigners could impact the controversial Investigatory Powers Act

EU judges may be asked to decide whether the intelligence services’ bulk collection of email data in order to prevent terrorist attacks is legal.

In a fresh challenge that could impact the Investigatory Powers Act, the campaign group Privacy International has argued in court on Monday that interception of social media that is not targeted and subject to sufficient safeguards is forbidden by a previous European judgment.
