Related News UNION MINISTER Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday said the issue of national security should not be politicised but for votebank politics terrorists and terror organisations were being appeased He was responding to a question on the alleged political link of suspected ISI agents who were arrested in Kolkata on Sunday The Kolkata Police STF had arrested three of a family for their alleged links to the Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) They were identified as Irshad Ansari (51) his son Asfaq Ansari (23) and relative Mohammed Jahangir Significantly while Irshad was an active member of Trinamool Congress-backed labour union of the port area Asfaq was the general secretary of Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad — the ruling Trinamool’s student wing — at a college in south Kolkata While local TMCP leaders have admitted that Irshad was a Trinamool worker state TMCP president Ashok Rudra had claimed that Asfaq was “removed two months ago over anti-party activities” On Tuesday without naming the Trinamool Gadkari said: “For the sake of votebank politics the situation today is such that appeasement of terrorists and terror organisations is happening which is not good On the question of country’s security there is no scope for politics” He was speaking to mediapersons on the sidelines of the AGM of the Bharat Chamber of Commerce “We have to fight terrorism collectively and globally… even Muslim countries are fighting against terrorism… Pakistan after losing three battles has become convinced that it cannot defeat India in a battle and thus has started a proxy war They have started sending terrorists to India to upset the Hindu-Muslim communal harmony that exists here” Gadkari said Speaking about “intolerance” Gadkari emphasised that his government’s aim was development for all He claimed that Congress was levelling unfounded allegations against the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi which “it is doing intentionally to create a sense of fear in a community for the sake of votes” “Some are indulging in such malpractices intentionally because they can’t stomach the progress under BJP and Narendra Modi” he added “Unfortunately even in Parliament allegations are being made against the Home Minister which are not true…” Gadkari said CPM’s Mohammad Salim in Lok Sabha on Monday had angered the treasury benches with a remark about Home Minister Rajnath Singh Salim had relied on a report in Outlook magazine that had attributed the remark to Rajnath in the aftermath of the election of Narendra Modi as PM After the controversy broke in Parliament Outlook clarified the quote was wrongly attributed to Rajnath and tweeted: “It was not our intention to denigrate the home minister or Parliament Outlook sincerely regrets the embarrassment caused to Mr Rajnath Singh and Mr Mohammad Salim” The tweet provided a link to a page where Outlook said “… A remark (‘first Hindu ruler after 800 years’) made by the late Ashok Singhal of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad was erroneously attributed to… Rajnath Singh” Without taking Salim’s name Gadkari said: “Whoever has levelled the allegation against the Home Minister yesterday in Parliament either prove it or resign Parliament should not be a place for unfounded allegations” On awards being returned by poets and authors Gadkari said: “I want to ask one question The writer (M M Kalburgi) was killed in Karnataka The Congress is in power there and law and order is a state subject The Dadri lynching incident happened in UP under the SP regime But BJP is being blamed… It is being intentionally done to ensure that the law and order situation of the country deteriorates” “No one returned their awards after the Mumbai attacks Some writers affiliated to the Communist ideology and who cannot see Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of India are blaming us for things that the BJP is not directly or indirectly involved in” he claimed Fear was one of the “biggest capitals” being used by some parties to portray a brutal image of Modi and the BJP added Gadkari Asked to comment on state BJP chief Rahul Sinha saying on Monday that “if BJP was not voted to power in the 2016 Assembly polls Bengal will turn into Pakistan” Gadkari said: “Media picks up one phrase from a speech and runs it as breaking news without any reference to what has been said before or after it… I am

CIA documents it’s not known how many holes remain open (Source: AP) Related News If the tech industry is drawing one lesson from the latest WikiLeaks disclosures it’s that data-scrambling encryption works and the industry should use more of it Documents purportedly outlining a massive CIA surveillance program suggest that CIA agents must go to great lengths to circumvent encryption they can’t break In many cases physical presence is required to carry off these targeted attacks Watch all our videos from Express Technology “We are in a world where if the US government wants to get your data they can’t hope to break the encryption” said Nicholas Weaver who teaches networking and security at the University of California Berkeley “They have to resort to targeted attacks and that is costly risky and the kind of thing you do only on targets you care about Seeing the CIA have to do stuff like this should reassure civil libertarians that the situation is better now than it was four years ago” MORE ENCRYPTION Four years ago is when former NSA contractor Edward Snowden revealed details of huge and secret US eavesdropping programs To help thwart spies and snoops the tech industry began to protectively encrypt email and messaging apps a process that turns their contents into indecipherable gibberish without the coded “keys” that can unscramble them The NSA revelations shattered earlier assumptions that internet data was nearly impossible to intercept for meaningful surveillance said Joseph Lorenzo Hall chief technologist at the Washington-based civil-liberties group Center for Democracy & Technology That was because any given internet message gets split into a multitude of tiny “packets” each of which traces its own unpredictable route across the network to its destination In the past spy agencies like the CIA could have hacked servers at WhatsApp or similar services to see what people were saying ( Source: AP) The realization that spy agencies had figured out that problem spurred efforts to better shield data as it transits the internet A few services such as Facebook’s WhatsApp followed the earlier example of Apple’s iMessage and took the extra step of encrypting data in ways even the companies couldn’t unscramble a method called end-to-end encryption CHALLENGES FOR AUTHORITIES In the past spy agencies like the CIA could have hacked servers at WhatsApp or similar services to see what people were saying End-to-end encryption though makes that prohibitively difficult So the CIA has to resort to tapping individual phones and intercepting data before it is encrypted or after it’s decoded It’s much like the old days when “they would have broken into a house to plant a microphone” said Steven Bellovin a Columbia University professor who has long studied cybersecurity issues Cindy Cohn executive director for Electronic Frontier Foundation a group focused on online privacy likened the CIA’s approach to “fishing with a line and pole rather than fishing with a driftnet” Encryption has grown so strong that even the FBI had to seek Apple’s help last year in cracking the locked iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino attackers Apple resisted what it considered an intrusive request and the FBI ultimately broke into the phone by turning to an unidentified party for a hacking tool — presumably one similar to those the CIA allegedly had at its disposal BI Director James Comey acknowledged the challenges posed by encryption ( Source: AP) On Wednesday FBI Director James Comey acknowledged the challenges posed by encryption He said there should be a balance between privacy and the FBI’s ability to lawfully access information He also said the FBI needs to recruit talented computer personnel who might otherwise go to work for Apple or Google Government officials have long wanted to force tech companies to build “back doors” into encrypted devices so that the companies can help law enforcement descramble messages with a warrant But security experts warn that doing so would undermine security and privacy for everyone As Apple CEO Tim Cook pointed out last year a back door for good guys can also be a back door for bad guys So far efforts to pass such a mandate have stalled STILL A PATCHWORK At the moment though end-to-end encrypted services such as iMessage and WhatsApp are still the exception While encryption is far more widely used than it was in 2013 many messaging companies encode user data in ways that let them read or scan it Authorities can force these companies to divulge message contents with warrants or other legal orders With end-to-end encryption the companies wouldn’t even have the keys to do so Further expanding the use of end-to-end encryption presents some challenges That’s partly because encryption will make it more difficult to perform popular tasks such as searching years of emails for mentions of a specific keyword Google announced in mid-2014 that it was working on end-to-end encryption for email but the tools have yet to materialize beyond research environments At the moment though end-to-end encrypted services such as iMessage and WhatsApp are still the exception (Source: AP) Instead Google’s Gmail encrypts messages in transit But even that isn’t possible unless it’s adopted by the recipient’s mail system as well And encryption isn’t a panacea as the WikiLeaks disclosures suggest According to the purported CIA documents spies have found ways to exploit holes in phone and computer software to grab messages when they haven’t been encrypted yet Although Apple Google and Microsoft say they have fixed many of the vulnerabilities alluded to in the CIA documents it’s not known how many holes remain open Also Read:WikiLeaks wants to work with tech companies after CIA data leak “There are different levels where attacks take place said Daniel Castro vice president with the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation “We may have secured one level (with encryption) but there are other weaknesses out there we should be focused on as well” Cohn said people should still use encryption even with these bypass techniques “It’s better than nothing” she said “The answer to the fact that your front door might be cracked open isn’t to open all your windows and walk around naked too” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App

won Its latest spin on demonetisation is yet another example of the government’s ‘heads we win tails we win’ arrogance But economy is not cinema So don’t believe for a moment that the government was expecting almost all of the demonetised currency to return to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI says almost 99 percent of it has come back) It was instead optimistic that black money hoarders would throw a huge chunk of the banned Rs 500 and 1000 notes down some drain – literally The first indication of the government’s optimism came from none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself In Japan on 12 November four days after his government banned the use of Rs 500 and 1000 notes at the stroke of midnight the prime minister was in a jovial mood First he told his audience how he had made Rs 500 and 100 notes vanish "Ghar main shaadi hai par paise nahin hai (there a marriage in thehousehold but there is no money)" he laughed Then he made another important observation "Pehle Gangaji me koi ek rupiya bhi nahi daalta tha par ab usi Ganga nadi me 1000/500ke note beh rahe hai(In River Ganga where people didn’t even donate one rupee now there are notes of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes flowing)" he said to a raucous applause What exactly was the prime minister telling us Listening to him back then made us believe that the government was convinced there was so much black money lying around in Indian homes that people were desperate to get rid of it in any way possible even if it meant dumping it in the Ganges It also underlined the government’s central belief – the one it is now denying in a classical exhibition of goal-post shifting – in the demonetisation move: That a huge amount of money would not return to the system thus giving it windfall gains This optimism was expressed by the government and many cheerleaders of demonetisation Arguing in favour of the note ban the then Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi told the Supreme Court that of the total estimated money in circulation of Rs 15-16 lakh crore the government expected people to deposit Rs 10-11 lakh crore "The rest Rs four-five lakh crore were being used in northeast and Jammu and Kashmir to fuel trouble in India That will be neutralised" he had said This view was partly endorsed by economist Jagdish Bhagwati a known supporter of the Modi government who believed around a third of the total currency in circulation on 8 November was black money and out of this Rs one trillion may not return Turns out reports of the death of black money were grossly exaggerated Instead of dumping their cash – hard-earned or ill-gotten – Indians were finding innovative ways to stash it in the banks This has now been affirmed by the RBI’s report stating almost 99 percent of the junked notes were returned Demonetisation with the benefit of fresh figures has turned out to be an exercise in shooting in the dark To create a big bang the Modi government picked up the gun and fired in all directions naming a few targets: black money counterfeit currency and terror financing It missed all of them by a huge margin Almost all the junked notes returned to banks leaving the task of identifying black money to the IT department whose job it always was from the very beginning Counterfeit currency was almost zero percent of the returned notes And terror strikes have gone on unabated even months after the ban Midway through the drive concerned about the flow of money back to the banks the government argued the aim of demonetisation was a less-cash economy This too has turned out to be a pipedream with cashless transactions staying almost at pre-demonetisation levels According to a report in The Indian Express in value terms November 2016 recorded Rs 94 lakh crore in electronic payments which grew to Rs 104 lakh crore in December surged in March to Rs 149 lakh crore then declined to Rs 107 lakh crore during July — a five-month low Now that even a lay man can see that the demonetisation coin fell on Modi government’s head leaving behind a large bump it is busy claiming success by citing achievements that were not even part of the original plan Only fans ofSholaywill buy the government’s post-truths
