70% Of The Cellphone Networks Are Monitored By NSA's Auroragold
NSA is becoming more and more common news now-a-days. The latest news from the whistleblower Edward Snowden is not great either. NSA project codenamed AURORAGOLD is gaining access to more and more mobile conversations and according to Edward Snowden they now have access to 70% of the World's mobile network.
What is AURORAGOLD?
So, what does AURORAGOLD do? In laymen terms, it capitalizes on the network's weakness and basically it sticks to the weaknesses in cellular networks to gain access to information whenever required by government officials. The idea is simple enough to make any common man wonder if he is being spied or not.
The whole process starts with the interception more than 1200 emails between different major cellular network operators. After gaining vital information from the email, NSA creates backdoors and injections into the networks. Once infected, the network can be accessed anytime and this should be a major concern for the common people.
The cellular network providers are at fault as they do protect the vital documents including the IR.21 document. The IR.21 document is shared between network operators so that they can handle the communication of the customers. The document provides information such as encryption used in the network lines and other vital information. NSA uses all the information to their advantage creating a loophole to access information anytime.
Conflict with USA companies
NSA has been notorious since 2010 and is continuing their pursuit without any fear or conflict with homeland companies. The latest conflict came into the scene is with GSM Association who is responsible for taking care all the confidential communication between the tech giants such as Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and more. GSM Association in total covers more than 800 giants over 200 countries. And, there is no point in understanding why NSA is spying more on ASM Association data.
NIST(National Institute of Standards and Technology) is also hacked by NSA. Moreover, NIST is responsible for providing all the vital technological advancement to different association including GSM. They have offered over $800,000 to GSM Association for improving security and privacy issues for mobile devices.
Even NIST top officials are not happy with the intervention of NSA and are questioning the existence of NSA. NIST is preparing all in for the counter-measures they can bring to the system. According to Jeremy Grant, the executive advisor for IM said, "At a time when concerns about data breaches and identity theft are growing, these new NSTIC pilots can play an important role in fostering a marketplace of online identity solutions."
Currently, 701 networks out of 985 networks are in siege of NSA scanner. More information reveals that countries like New Zealand, Germany, France and Australia. It also reveals a staggering fact that the operating AURORAGOLD is been active since 2010.
The path is simple; they try to infiltrate the networks after gathering confidential information that regulates the pattern with which the data is transferred between different nodes within the network. NSA is not alone; surveillance companies in countries like New Zealand, Canada, Australia, and UK are given the vital information to be the part of "Five Eyes" surveillance alliance.
