Internet is (also) a scary and dangerous anarchistic place. One day you may pray for these alphabet stripped and starred tough, freckled and brave boys and girls so they can handle the situation instead of you.

They need to come up with a data cable encryption device you can connect to your monitor and key board as a package that works together.
As long as they have the patent office wanting all the encryption software you use and they control the internet hubs your just out of luck. They can spy on you.

No way-anyway. There are none better at cracking codes and encriptions worldwide than the NSA and others like them.
If you can SEND something...they can and will...intercept and break it. Its what they do best....and have the $$$$ and desire...and talent...to do it.

Can you do it with the text? Try it. Don't just copy the picture. The text is what the NSA needs in order to data mine it. But the picture and avoiding the standards put in place by our friends the international stanards guys who give words and letters and so on a numbered meaning which is used for doing auto translate and even spying on what you are talking about looking for trigger words in order to flag you is defeated with the picture.edit on 25-8-2013 by JBA2848 because: (no reason given)

Not really. If an underlying protocol layer could be implemented using 256 bit AES encryption and a large random generated key it would take a huge amount of brute force to decrypt. It would also take years even with a super computer. This tech is already publicly available. We just need to incorporate it and make it user friendly.
It would have to operate at the hardware level at the "physical level" of the TCP/IP stack. NSA could still have out-of-band communication with the network board via the internet. Basically they could have secret data packets that is only read by the hardware and not sent up to the operating-system - the postal equivalent would be those bar codes that couriers like Fed-Ex use.
Here's an example - certain servers that are switched off can be activated where a "magic packet" can be sent to the MAC address of that PC despite it being switched off. That means the network chip is always active and listening to the network despite the PC being switched off... what else on the PC is still active?
