Wikileaks encryption use offers 'legal challenge'


www.bbc.co.uk



Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange responds to a BBC question about why it provides encrypted files for download. (Video: Frontline Club)

A novel use of encryption by whistle-blowing website Wikileaks could "challenge the legal system for years to come," according to an influential observer of the hacking community.

Emmanuel Goldstein, editor of 2600 The Hacker Quarterly magazine, made his comments in reference to an encrypted file recently posted on the site.

Is this it?

Which archives are they talking about?

Is it the insurance file or is it the remaining 15,000 or so that are yet to released on Afghanistan?

I think this is developing as we speak, wouldn't make sense to tweet about it otherwise, then again not too much has made sense with Wikileaks recently.

Keep your eyes fixed.

Probably the remaining 15000.

I wonder when the Iraqi ones are due to be released. I've lost track. Any ideas?

Oh my lord, he's probably talking about the insurance file. Everybody get them ready because we are about to see what is in there.

Niiice!


Thanks for the heads up Serbsta!

I like what E.Goldstein had to say in that article.
He is the man!

and if he can't 'crack' it, or one of his mates can't..
no one here would have a chance in hell.


good link, thanks bro.

Interesting.

Firstly, and on a more serious note, I wonder if his mentioning the Stasi is a hint at all? Possibly documents dealing not with wars but more internal, police state matters? DHS? Who knows until its released.

I also had a bit of a laugh over the name Emanual Goldstein. I feel like I have heard that before......
