Cloud computing: EU report warns of surveillance through USA

NSA centre in Maryland: EU researchers warn of extensive surveillance through US authorities

How secure is cloud computing? In a study on behalf of the EU parliament researchers strongly warn of data transfer into USA: Authorities could keep Europeans secretly and completely legally under surveillance.

US authorities can secretly get hold of access to data of European users with cloud suppliers like Google, Facebook or Dropbox.

Very much more dramatic is the loss over control of data when these for example are lying on the servers of US suppliers. US investigators can therefore apply for a secret decision with a court and keep the foreign users under surveillance.

So the mass surveillance of Europeans through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Amendment Act (FISAA) of 2008 is made possible.

In addition clear warnings should be stipulated: Because when cloud data are transferred from the EU into the USA, these would be exposed to the surveillance apparatus there.

This obviously did not calm down the authors of the study. They refer among others to the gigantic computer centre, which is presently erected by the US secret service NSA. They also quoted the lecture of a former NSA worker, the whistle-blower William Binney, at the hacker conference "Hope" in New York in the past summer. At the end of December Binney had warned of the US surveillance at the congress of the Chaos Computer Club in Hamburg.
