Klipspringer: NZ is no different to the US when it comes to the examples provided by gzt.


Well I don't know about that. But the issue is not granting or denying entry on health basis. The issue is that information provided to foreign powers is completely outside the legislative control of the country that provided it and it can be used for purposes which the originating country did not anticipate.

A declaration would have been filled in which would have stated that the applicant was in good health.

Its the job of immigration to validate that the information provided is correct.

Should we just let everybody into the country based solely on the information they provide in these declarations? Or should we be filtering them our at the border, before they do become a burden on our health system. Rather do this at the border.

Back on topic.

NSA paid US$10 million to RSA (Acquired by EMC)

"RSA received $10 million in a deal that set the NSA formula as the preferred, or default, method for number generation in the BSafe software, according to two sources familiar with the contract. Although that sum might seem paltry, it represented more than a third of the revenue that the relevant division at RSA had taken in during the entire previous year, securities filings show"

NSA then used this implementation as leverage to advance the same method towards an international standard.

A Christmas message from the ACLU:



Remember. If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear - except gradual loss of control over your information and the future establishment of an omnipotent state ; ).

I think everyone should have a read on this: "Three things I learned from the Snowden files".

     

  1. It’s not “privacy” but freedom.
  2. “Collect it all” was the decisive break. 
  3. Snowden going public changed everything.
