Insight: Distrustful U.S. allies force spy agency to back down in encryption row
By Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - An international group of cryptography experts has forced the U.S. National Security Agency to back down over two data encryption techniques it wanted set as global industry standards, reflecting deep mistrust among close U.S. allies. In interviews and emails seen by Reuters, academic and industry experts from countries including Germany, Japan and Israel worried that the U.S. electronic spy agency was pushing the new techniques not because they were good encryption tools, but because it knew how to break them. The NSA has now agreed to drop all but the most powerful versions of the techniques - those least likely to be vulnerable to hacks - to address the concerns.
Photos from Puerto Rico reveal the devastating power of Hurricane Maria
This year has been a historic one for hurricanes, with major storm after major storm churning through the Atlantic. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria all reached "major hurricane" (Category 3 or above) status as they spun through those warm waters. And as these storms have lashed not only the U.S. mainland but many of the smaller islands that populate the Caribbean and the Atlantic, we've been reminded of what a devastating and destructive force nature can be. SEE ALSO: Reports: Hurricane Maria leaves Puerto Rico entirely without power Puerto Rico is no different. The small island of 3.4 million people was still cleaning up from being side-swiped by Irma when Maria slammed into it on Tuesday, engulfing nearly the entire island with hurricane-force winds. Now the clean up begins anew and we're reminded once more of the raw power of these storms, of he widespread damage they can cause.
