-- NSA the NSA snooping on your phone calls and tracking every move you make online that there are ways you can't protect yourself we did talk about that a little bit earlier -- can -- it.
Morgan Wright is that this is a cyber terrorism analyst and former advisor agency departments.
Anti terrorism assistance program also former advisors and thanks have begun to talk about.
Or talk to.
All about this mortgage in in general we're -- -- after this beacon news I don't know what's coming right we're gonna get flooded dinner in -- boxes probably.
With advertisements about how we -- to protect -- safe right how good just in general it in general terms how good it is the security that's available to us that we can buy extra security as consumers.
There's a lot of good stuff in fact Bruce that was just on him and -- followed read his stuff.
There's a lot of salable to the consumer but the promise a lot of them can't get technical enough to say they have to have a level of trust.
So there's a lot of things you can buy from recognized names -- computer associates -- that have.
A lot of good stuff but for most people be -- be secured by encryption or some of the program.
I'm more I'm nervous I even when you've just got to start downloading apps not the easiest thing you can do and I Brian just to see some extra time and understanding so one of the things that we all do is email right so -- number one be concerned about people reading the contents are very -- And number two how difficult is it -- to make things a little bit more safe and see here.
It's actually not very difficult fact we're gonna show a couple things right here and now there's two things we're gonna talk about with the email one -- a client that you can put on your own email.
And another one is when you can use on the web so even if somebody doesn't have the program they can actually use it so the one I was talked about here it's called Hushmail let's have and a lot of this is free.
So hush -- a free service what allows you to do you can see the inbox here but then when I wanna bring up and I want to send a message one of the options it gives me is to encrypt my message.
And -- also -- -- message to show that it has not been changed and what I can do is if we needed this.
So you're -- and I wanted to send some real sensitive documents I type in a question what is your favorite show of course the answer should be happening -- -- -- prep course.
And then but I would call him right send him a different message syndicate here's the past -- or we could agree upon an established past.
Let me sit -- like -- now that I made on accounts in so let's say you were sending me an email from Hushmail to my work account.
I don't also need to -- I don't -- to get it.
What you would get as you get a linking your email I'd say go open this message it would take you to a website you'd have to put in -- with the correct answer.
And then you would see the encrypted message but it would not work in what she did and and after five attempts.
It locks up the message so if you got it wrong or -- -- trying to guess at that message is permanently disabled.
That's really fascinating says this -- -- Jesus for all your email that we as a sound even for personal -- it's just like on having a look what people are creatures of habit you know we're all gonna get lazy but when I do sense stuff that's very sensitive some of the work that I've done -- why would I gets more pro is the advisor for law enforcement of the Republican National Convention.
A lot of the stuff that we did was to secure.
You know we wondered since your messages because we're dealing with the national special security events of this stuff was not in the open but I just talked to my -- and talking to an attorney fact that's one of the reasons and in town so.
You want to protect the sensitive conversation did you say anything this is reliable -- fairly sick all absolutely in fact Bruce we'll tell you the encryption algorithms ever put in here.
Have been peer reviewed they've been tested in the open and people say -- these are good things.
-- disaster a little bit about some of the recommending I have recommended apps that you have right we -- a mission encryption a couple times is that is that a key part to some of these now.
So literally encryption is like putting a lock on -- door you know it keeps it he keeps honest people honest and it keeps people from stepping in areas that you don't want to.
So one of the things we did here two I have this built -- actually into my apple mail client so you see one of things I can be right here that little -- if I click on that that will encrypt it.
If I click on that that -- also digitally.
I don't do that and -- -- they see this little lock right here -- if we can move over a little bit on the -- vacancies is a little locking you press that in this encrypted.
Right so when I start typing in a message like to somebody it will encrypt it.
This actually free tool that's -- PG people pretty good privacy created by -- Phil Zimmerman.
This is called GPG tools it's -- where it's something you can find on the Internet uses the same encryption algorithms that the US government uses to saying to protect their stuff.
But it -- -- right into my email clients like -- standard encrypted.
And digitally signed and encrypted and digitally signed so either way you have -- -- is encrypted and I'm getting that email this when you have to have the program force and I both have their share it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- How Boehner why am I really.
Well you're vulnerable to somebody can get your -- remember -- Palin during the account somebody's able to reset her Yahoo! password.
And -- -- in because people can guess information so -- If you're using Gmail its electronic communications privacy act reading things less than six months old in SA being able to read the contents of the so.
You might be open to people and there's a thing called the man in the middle attack we won't get technical that means I think I'm sending it to you but it's actually going to somebody else first.
And then coming to you and they're reading the contents going both direction -- -- -- region they want more information about Morgan at C two case dot com I mean it's part of connected to the case that they can go there it's an info request.
Yani has male or anything like that you that I did -- they have a lot more kids so I give people -- some contact.
Martin thank you you mentioned it's great to see this summit -- now.
I like the panic the name John -- -- -- write my next message to you will be encrypted.
