Subject: Re: XKeyscore sees 'nearly EVERYTHING you do
 online

I'm the NSA.  I want to capture a lot of traffic,  I don't need to go to all the Tier 1's.  I can go to a few and get them on board.  I could even go to the exchange points like AMS-IX and have them give me a tap.  The other carriers have no idea that AMS-IX is letting me sniff their traffic that transits the exchange.  (Not implying that AMS-IX does this just using them as an example).  Or I'm the NSA and I want to see the majority of traffic to google searches and gmail.  I only need to get google to allow me to interconnect.  Also there are credible reports that the NSA and other agencies have the ability to tap fiber optic cables without the knowledge of the carriers.

If they have this tech why would they limit its use to just spying on foreign govts?


I don't know if any of it is true but I could easily see how it would be possible for them to do such things.

Having access to the building is ok, but you still need to sniff the fibre, and in a centre like that any tap would be found quickly by one tech or another .. the guys from NANOG are good, so the deal must be with the carriers.

If it's a 'legit' connection then No Problèmo

So you think this is real ? All Tiers 1 would be partner with NSA ? Even in Europ ? This sound crazy

Don't forget that they also have to back haul that data to their data centres !! They would have to have secret agreements with all of the Tier 1 carriers. Sure sounds far fetched!

Right. But where are their tap ? In Internet Exchange Point ? In AS ? And how can they do that ? "Hello, I'm NSA, can I get a TAP on your network" :-)  This would say that ISP agree and the amount of data to transfer would be so vast . How can they transfer all this amount of data into their system ??

Optically tapping ALL of the submarine cable going into and out of the U.S. would still not give them ALL of the claimed data. They have to be tapping all of the major traffic exchange sites in the U.S. to get this kind of data.
