NSA: Ultimate Internet Spy Center
The NSA‘s new spy center will see everything
Imagine a massive supercomputer in the desert, watched around the clock by armed guards, capable of intercepting and decrypting virtually every piece of information in the world. Sounds like science fiction doesn’t it? Well, according to Wired, the NSA is in the process of building just such a place, and they’ve madeleaps and bounds of progress at breaking the standard AES encryption algorithm that keeps your emails and other private information secure.
This new surveillance center is being constructed in the Utah desert, near a town called Bluffdale. When it’s finished, you’ll be able to fit five US Capitols inside, and most of that space will be occupied by supercomputers capable of storing more data than you can even imagine (you can imagine a lot, can’t you?). Your private emails, Google searches, receipts, travel information – pretty much ever scrap of data generated – will be stored here, while sophisticated software sifts through it in search of anything remotely suspicious.
