Intrigued at the Reg's outrage at FB minimal explanation of the outage.
1. How do you think a comprehensive technical explanation makes things better ?
2. Are you going to suggest the FB refund people's money ?

In one sense Rudd is right. She does not need to understand cryptography.
What she does need is to listen to the advice of security experts who will explain to her what is feasible and what is not.
If she has an expert advising her who claims PKI can be weakened or outlawed, let Rudd put him/her forward to explain how this would work.
No. I thought not.
Gosh: open source has bugs ?!
The point many people (such as Bruce Schneier) are making is that NSA are probably relying on things like back doors and poor security practices to ensure they can breach people's privacy. Open source is much less likely to be vulnerable to these as we know what goes into open source.
I got to watch this at a charity event. After a meal we went to the cinema. At about 10:30 I realised the ship hadn't even started to sink and I realised I had a long way to go. The scene where they start shooting in the hold had me laughing out loud - I was waiting for a car chase to start.
150 minutes of my life I'll never have back ...
