The problem is that anything is or becomes connected which each other. In the past we had independent communication 'systems'. A simple physical letter and the landline for phone calls. Then (communication) satellites came. To me the key technologies are different satellites!!! So we’ve got mobile GSM network (mobile phone). We’ve got cable TV, satellite TV. Then the internet which had to be dialed up (into landline) with a modem. Then ADSL came, cable broadband came, satellite upload came. WLAN spots came. With it the different kind of servers, their clients (e-mail and so on....) Cable transports TV broadcasts and internet data. With it phone voice ‘data’. Also the landline does transport TV streams, phone voice data and internet data. So the GSM / 3G /4G do. In between are satellites and oversea cables….anything is interconnected. The question is don’t I have the right to have a communication which is really private? And why do govt have the need to collect data at all? Isn’t that manner not doubtful? To me personally the govt themselves are a greater PITA than a potential theorist concerning freedom and democracy. Theorists might use the internet to plan an assault, but in the past they could have done that by using a simple landline phone also. The govts have the money, the tech to collect data and to store them. This means power. Power against citizens. And what had been done in the past for ‘our’ internet security? How old for instance is the HTTPS protocol ? Browser option regarding encryption? SSL / TLS? How old is the security section of the browsers already?? Nobody in fact is interested in to have new security technologies!!! And if one is, then the one becomes suspicious! Who knows what a VPN is? Who knows the Tor network? How is the internet administrated and from which nations? The Asian make cheap hardware, the US monopolists Google / M$ and crapple make operating systems. DNS and domain registrations without US authorities???? Possible??? Who seizes servers else than the US? Where is the EU? And why don’t they care about a healthy balance of internet administration power???? Questions which need to have an answer…..and most ‘common’ citizens aren't even aware of the situation. The balance of forces concerning communication technology is heavily disturbed… These are my concerns. I am not afraid of an terror assault. This attribute belongs rather to the US. I want back my freedom.
