    When 9/11 happened Trent Lott said, all the things we wanted do and couldn't get away,
    now we can do.

    According to some journalists corporations have benefited from aspects of the Patriot Act and FISA, by invading the privacy of innocent citizens for the benefit of their bottom line.

    Homeland Security and the National Security Agency may be taking a closer look at Internet communications in the future.

    The Department of Homeland Security’s top cybersecurity official told CNET on Wednesday that the department may eventually extend its Einstein technology, which is designed to detect and prevent electronic attacks, to networks operated by the private sector. The technology was created for federal networks.

    Greg Schaffer, assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications, said in an interview that the department is evaluating whether Einstein “makes sense for expansion to critical infrastructure spaces” over time.

    Not much is known about how Einstein works, and the House Intelligence Committee once charged that descriptions were overly “vague” because of “excessive classification.” The White House did confirm this week that the latest version, called Einstein 3, involves attempting to thwart in-progress cyberattacks by sharing information with the National Security Agency.
