After Reading “CALM DOWN: The NSA Hasn’t ‘Cracked’ Basic Internet Encryption” today in class I learned three important things. That the public cannot trust the people example government officials in charge. There is a difference between cracking and exploiting, and lastly, how safe our internet data really is. Already from only three classes in Hacking Rhetoric I feel more comfortable with the term “hacking”. It is also really special and interesting that we have a professional hacker in the class. Even though it kind of scares me what he had to share so far. I’m looking forward to learning more and more about Hacking Rhetoric and maybe even becoming a professional hacker myself!
