HTTPS and PRISM Confusion


Not sure how using HTTPS on every connection provides any security from NSA when the PRISM program pretty much allows direct access to servers.

I can see how it would help from casual hacking/snooping but if the offenders have direct access to the servers doesn't really matter if the connection is secure or not, right? wrong? :tellme:

Stoic Joker:
Correct. Encryption is currently an exorcise in futility because the madmen now have the keys to the kingdom.

Unfortunately, it is still required by law that certain type of correspondence be pretend-secured just so that the 400lb gorilla level "bad people" get first crack at it.
