The four slides appearing today deal with how to extract data from a new target to PRISM, how to search PRISM and how datais gathered from private companies ie: Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, AOL, Skype, You Tube etc, etc. I really don't know why Apple isn't mentioned because I have read in several places that Apple is in it up to its eyeballs.

ETA: I missed one initially and it is kindly linked to below. It shows there were some 117,000 active surveillance targets as at 5 April 2013. I didn't change title of thread in case it screws things up for subscribers.

NSA slides

I still cannot believe that they have such lousy slides.

The power point slides are terrible who was hired to make these?

They are like a 90's flashback to my college day presentations, I know I am picking on the aesthetics and not the content at the moment but they do appear rather amateurish which is puzzling as we are led to believe they employ the best of the best.

It appears on first impressions as though a politician with some basic power point skills knocked them up on a Friday afternoon or something, very strange.

That is the real conspiracy, everything is run by C-Grade students who are simply looking for paychecks and to find out what their wives are up to on weekends. They funnel money into projects and a few really bright organizers make mountains of contractual cash while the rest of them prance around like they are doing something useful but can barely put a slideshow together.

It's like watching the stereotypical bad guys on a 90's cartoon segment.

Be happy in the fact those slides cost $36,837 to produce. It's not about how good they look, it's about how much it took to make them.

I love the cheesy slides. What did people expect though? The NSA hires eggheads and mathematicians. The academic's roll model type guy. The creative buck roger's types work across the way at DARPA.


I do wonder though. Did they get proper written permission to use each of those corporate logos on their official documents? I'll just bet I'd get sued for that if I did it. It's worth wondering about because one gets the very strong impression that Google and Facebook as two of the players, weren't entirely happy with the shotgun marriage they got from the NSA. Perhaps they ought to see about willful, long term trademark infringement. Why let them get away with anything?

Totally agree the costs are probably much higher all taxpayer funded of course.

The top-secret PRISM program allows the U.S. intelligence community to gain access from nine Internet companies to a wide range of digital information, including e-mails and stored data, on foreign targets operating outside the United States.


And?

Government 'spying' isn't all its cracked up to be see:

Thanks for putting up the slides,iamhobo.

Lots of juicy stuff to search on on those slides. The actual explanation of what they mean is located within the article itself - click on the link I provided above. I wlil recap here:


Slide 1 - Acquiring data from a new target This slide describes what happens when an NSA analyst "tasks" the PRISM system for information about a new surveillance target. The request to add a new target is passed automatically to a supervisor who reviews the "selectors," or search terms. The supervisor must endorse the analyst's "reasonable belief," defined as 51 percent confidence, that the specified target is a foreign national who is overseas at the time of collection.



Slide 2 - Analyzing information collected from private companies After communications information is acquired, the data are processed and analyzed by specialized systems that handle voice, text, video and "digital network information" that includes the locations and unique device signatures of targets.



Slide 3 - Each target is assigned a case notation The PRISM case notation format reflects the availability, confirmed by The Post's reporting, of real-time surveillance as well as stored content.


There are also annotations alongside each slide that explain the various acronyms and NSA departments referred to in the slide.

Thanks. The explanation of that one is:


Searching the PRISM database On April 5, according to this slide, there were 117,675 active surveillance targets in PRISM's counterterrorism database. The slide does not show how many other Internet users, and among them how many Americans, have their communications collected "incidentally" during surveillance of those targets.


117,675 active targets. I bet that's increased exponentially since April 5


Slide three shows they have the ability to eavesdrop on target's conversations in real time


This article breaks the slides down a little bit more.

51% change the target is foreigner in a foreign country. Didn't someone say they just as might well just toss a coin. That would cut the cost down alot and probably make the whole process faster. Why didn't they figure that one out?

Really hoping these STASI wannabes end up being escorted to a sticky end by an ugly mob carrying rope and pitchforks.

There, now balance is restored to the Force.
