Deliberately using fallible encryption technology in commercial software giving the NSA access to users’ computers, spying with ease, is why eight or more researchers have decided not to attend a highly-touted Internet security conference.
Of course, EMC Corporation, a huge data storage company who own RSA Security, who the researchers have the beef with, have claimed that they didn’t intentionally do anything wrong.
A governmental $10 million contract that has appeared in a published report, last month, however would seem like a good impetus towards crooked, covert activity. The modus operandi of big money could be deduced and concluded as a motive.
The researchers smelled a rat with the RSA and stayed away.
