Badges? We don't need no badges

Two items that should concern every University of Maryland employee:
  • The FBI's use of "National Security Letters" to authorize the examination of your email, web browsing, online purchases, library and book reading habits, etc.. National Security Letters are issued by FBI field supervisors and do not require clearance by a prosecutor, grand jury or judge. In addition, recipients are permanently barred from disclosing the receipt of these letters. Read more here
  • The August 5th Federal Communications Commission decision that the 1994 Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) that makes it easier for federal agents to tap computer networks should cover broadband networks like the one on campus. UMCP is now mandated to install $18 million in network hardware approved by the FBI to facilitate the execution of "National Security Letters." Read more here
