Bruce Schneier on how to choose secure passwords Part of my job requires asking for people's passwords for their computer. in order to do diagnostics & repair.

NSA has VPNs in Vulcan death grip—no, really, that’s what they call it The National Security Agency’s Office of Target Pursuit (OTP) maintains a team of engineers dedicated to cracking the encrypted traffic of virtual private networks (VPNs) and has developed tools that could potentially uncloak the traffic in the majority of VPNs used to secure traffic passing over the Internet today, according to documents published this week by the German news magazine Der Speigel.
