Do You Like Online Privacy? You May Be a Terrorist
- A flyer designed by the FBI and the Department of Justice to promote suspicious activity reporting in internet cafes lists basic tools used for online privacy as potential signs of terrorist activity. The document, part of a program called â€śCommunities Against Terrorismâ€ť, lists the use of â€śanonymizers, portals, or other means to shield IP addressâ€ť as a sign that a person could be engaged in or supporting terrorist activity. The use of encryption is also listed as a suspicious activity along with steganography, the practice of using â€śsoftware to hide encrypted data in digital photosâ€ť or other media. In fact, the flyer recommends that anyone â€śoverly concerned about privacyâ€ť or attempting to â€śshield the screen from view of othersâ€ť should be considered suspicious and potentially engaged in terrorist activities.
