Newly released emails show Google executives secretly met with NSA | End the Lie – Independent News

“About six months ago, we began focusing on the security of mobility devices,” Alexander wrote in the email. “A group primarily Google, Apple and Microsoft recently came to agreement on a set of core security principles. When we reach this point in our projects we schedule a classified briefing for the CEOs of key companies to provide them a brief on the specific threats we believe can be mitigated and to seek their commitment for their organization to move ahead … Google’s participation in refinement, engineering and deployment of the solutions will be essential.”While some say that it is indeed essential for the government and private technology companies to share information, there are still risks.“There is some risk to user privacy and to user security from the way the vulnerability disclosure is done,” said Jennifer Granick, director of civil liberties at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society.The classified briefing mentioned in Alexander’s email was part of a larger government initiative called the Enduring Security Framework ESF, which remains shrouded in secrecy.
