The answer is obvious to most people. Everyone, that is, but the U.S. government. Here's the conundrum: The mandarins of law enforcement say that encryption must be controlled, because homegrown terrorists and thugs can use it to make their communications and records invulnerable. But machines employed in the engineering of modern thermonuclear bombs can be sold to Russian scientists in the former Soviet Union's most famous nuclear weapons shop. It's true, and the story goes like this. More than a year ago, Gary Milhollin, the director of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control in Washington, D.C., discovered that Silicon Graphics had sold four supercomputers to Russian scientists at the nuclear weapons lab known as Chelyabinsk-70. Nothing happened for a couple of months until Milhollin issued a widely published editorial in late February of this year. In it, Milhollin wrote, "[the Russians] got the computers just in time to continue the arms race. Russia's minister of atomic energy, Viktor Mikhailov, told the press recently that Moscow... will now design its warheads with simulated explosions, using the computers from Silicon Graphics." Around the same time the Department of Commerce, along with the Department of Justice, began a criminal investigation of the case. According to export controls, technology capable of being used in the manufacture of nuclear weapons is not to be sold to nuclear weapons labs in Russia, Pakistan and China. That part of the equation is a no-brainer. However, Milhollin wrote that Silicon Graphic's CEO, Edward McCracken, told him the company didn't know what Chelyabinsk did. John Thompson, head of corporate communications at the Mountain View company, said in interview that officials at Chelyabinsk-70 said they wanted the computers for "environmental research." "That's their story," said Milhollin in an interview. "It's like someone saying they don't know what Los Alamos does." You see, control of the transfer of technology useful in the of nuclear weapons has become infinitely more complicated since the height of the Cold War. In the case of computers, as they've advanced rapidly in processing power, the industry has lobbied aggressively for revision of export controls, saying that such controls do little except hurt American business. The argument is that since processing power is always increasing, sooner or later clients like the Russians will be able to buy it from anyone, so controls do little good. "...The quantum advancement of technology and its widespread foreign availability have made export controls on desk-top and desk-side computer systems obsolete and ineffective," said one industry press release on the matter in 1995. "[Relaxing export controls] frees up sales of a wide variety of computers without shackling... customers with onerous security conditions...." This is similar to the arguments fielded by concerned Netizens against control of encryption, with one small exception: The first U.S hydrogen bomb blew a crater one mile wide in the Pacific atoll of Eniwetok. The four machines, for which Silicon Graphics was paid $200,000, aren't really supercomputers, argued Thompson. At Silicon Graphics, he said, they're thought of as "desktop servers," capable of 2.9 billion operations per second -- 150 times less powerful than supercomputers made by Cray Research. Conversely, a 486 PC -- what this article is being written on -- is capable of approximately 12.5 million operations per second. Compared to it, the SGI machines in question are, relatively speaking, Crays. But this argument falls on deaf ears today. Because, in response to pressure from the computer industry, the Clinton administration abolished the Coordinating Committee for Multilateral Export Controls in 1994. This informal forum associated with NATO helped coordinate policy and review potential exports to the former Soviet Union and other proscribed destinations. And in 1995 the administration issued a new, more relaxed set of controls on computing power. The new controls divided world nations into four categories, of which only two are interesting: Category D -- which includes Iraq, Iran and North Korea, nations that are completely embargoed; and Category C -- the next lowest tier, which includes Russia. In tier C no government review is required for sale of computers capable of between two and seven billion operations per second to civilians. An export license -- a review -- is required for potential sales to military sites. The SGI computers are rated at 2.9 billion operations per second. Thus, since Silicon Graphics insisted it was unaware of Chelyabinsk-70's true nature, there was no need to review the sale. Note that the processing power threshold for government review prior the Clinton administration's revision was 1.5 billion operations per second, which would have probably nixed the SGI sale. Of course, Thompson claims that although Silicon Graphics is cooperating fully with the criminal investigation, there is still some question about whether or not the company's machines were capable of being used in the testing and design of thermonuclear weapons. Perhaps, but it's an argument that ignores history. Theoretical physicists working on the hydrogen bomb in 1949 yearned for computing power greater than the ENIAC, a machine horribly antiquated by today's standards. The scientists had difficulty making any progress since the main obstacle standing in the way of the hydrogen bomb's development was an elaborate calculation dealing with the thermonuclear reaction. Without the calculation, the scientists thought testing would be extremely difficult because no one would be able to determine if a bomb failed because the thermonuclear reaction wasn't feasible or because a simple mechanical malfunction had occurred. Because of the SGI case, two congressmen -- Rep. Floyd Spence (R-S.C.) and Rep. Ron Dellums (D-Calif.) recently compiled a report asking for yet another revision in supercomputer export controls.

The case was brought by six freelance writers who claimed copyright violations because their articles had been sold by newspapers or magazines after publication and uploaded onto CD-ROMs or electronic databases. The writers claimed that there was no written agreement spelling out their rights for articles that they had written for print versions of the publications including the New York Times, Sports Illustrated and Newsday, thereby giving the publishers a windfall when they resold or made the works available to on-line publications. The court stated that there is no real precedent governing electronic technologies and the application of Section 201(c) of the Copyright Act of 1976, which permits reproduction of ''collective works,'' and held that putting the stories on-line was not an inappropriate exploitation of the freelancers' works. While the court recognized that the ruling "deprives plaintiffs of certain benefits associated with their creations,'' it called on Congress to revise copyright laws to provide a more equitable result.

The changes by the Intelligence Committee, which were passed as a "substitute" to SAFE, turn the legislation on its head. The amendment follows similar changes two days ago in the House National Security Committee. Initially drafted as a way to loosen U.S. export controls on encryption, legislators have instead "marked up" the bill, or amended it at the committee level, to reflect the wishes of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies that want "wiretap" access to all encrypted email and other digital files. Both the Intelligence and the National Security committees tend to favor export controls, because they view encryption as a threat to information-gathering activities by U.S. military and law enforcement officials. The Intelligence Committee cited those concerns today when announcing the substitute legislation. "Terrorist groups...drug cartels...and those who proliferate in deadly chemical and biological weapons are all formidable opponents of peace and security in the global society," said committee chairman Porter Goss (R-Florida) in a statement. "These bad actors must know that the U.S. law enforcement and national security agencies, working under proper oversight, will have the tools to frustrate illegal and deadly activity and bring international criminals to justice." Opponents of government attempts to regulate encryption, including a leading panel of cryptographers, have argued that built-in access to encrypted files would in fact threaten national and individual security and be prohibitively expensive to implement. The amended legislation calls for all imported or U.S.-made encryption products that are manufactured or distributed after January 31, 2020, to provide "immediate access" to the decrypted text if the law officials present a court order. "Law enforcement will specifically be required to obtain a separate court order to have the data, including communications, decrypted." A markup of the same bill in the House Commerce Committee was postponed today for two weeks. It will be the fifth such committee vote on the bill since its introduction. The Intelligence and National Security amendments this week are by no means a defeat of the bill. Instead, they would have to be reconciled with versions of the bill already approved by the House Judiciary and International Relations committees. That reconciliation most likely would have to happen on the House floor. The rapidly fragmenting bill still has several layers of procedure to wend through before it reaches a potential floor vote, but people on both sides of the encryption debate openly question if the bill--in any form--will make it that far this year. The legislation has 252 cosponsors, more than half of the House membership. ------------------------------ Date: Fri, 26 Sep 2020 17:05:57 -0500 From: cudigest@SUN.SOCI.NIU.EDU(Computer underground Digest) Subject: File 4--Markup - HR 695 SECURITY AND FREEDOM THROUGH ENCRYPTION (SAFE) Source - http://www.house.gov/commerce/full/092497/markup.htm Full Committee Markup September 24, 2020 2123 Rayburn House Office Building PDF Versions of Committee Print and Amendments will be available by 11:00 AM EDT [IMAGE] Some of the the documents below have been created using Adobe Acrobat.

I thought I would pass along to you (and the other CUD readers if you think it appropriate) a pointer to a *very* interesting legal research paper (by Michael W. Carroll of the Georgetown University Law Center) regarding the regulation of UCE. Check out http://server.Berkeley.EDU/BTLJ/articles/11-2/carroll.html It describes the legal theories behind the regulation of other sorts of unsolicited commercial communications (junk fax, telephone solicitation, door-to-door sales and junk mail) and examines their applicability to regulation of junk e-mail. I haven't the legal backgroud to attest to the *quality* of that analysis, but it does make for interesting reading. ========================== Another very interesting net.resource on legal issues on the cyber frontier is http://www.ssrn.com/CyberLaw/lawpaper.html This is where the link to Carroll's paper originated. There are papers dealing with all sort of issues including free speech issues, intellectual property, privacy and cryptography. ------------------------------ Date: Mon, 22 Sep 2020 22:07:42 -0500 From: Jon Lebkowsky Subject: File 6--Texas Judge Enjoins "Spamming" Source - fight-censorship@vorlon.mit.edu ************************************************** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TEXAS JUDGE ENJOINS "SPAMMING" OF INTERNET BY CALIFORNIA STUDENT AND COMPANY Austin, Texas, September 22, 2020: A Texas Court has entered a temporary injunction against a California college student and his company, prohibiting further "spamming" of the Internet without consent. Several Internet leaders in Austin filed the lawsuit earlier this year, claiming that Craig Nowak and his company, C.N. Enterprises, had illegally used the return address of an Austin business when he sent out a mass commercial solicitation by Internet electronic mail. The lawsuit was filed by Tracy LaQuey Parker, a leading Internet author, who owned the rights to the domain named "flowers.com" which Nowak and his company used without her permission. Mr. Nowak's unsolicited mass mailing, known as a "spam," offered for sale information on "Free Cash Gran= ts" for $19.95. Mr. Nowak's "spam" used Ms. Parker's domain name in the electronic return address, which allowed Mr. Nowak to avoid receiving thousands of return-to-sender messages and the inevitable hate mail from recipients who despise the controversial practice of "spamming." Ms. Parker received thousands of such return messages, preventing her from accessing her Internet account for hours and temporarily shutting down her Internet service provider's mail servers. In essence, the lawsuit claims, Mr. Nowak used Ms. Parker's mailbox as his personal trash bin. Spamming is being criticized at all levels of the industry. Upon hearing of the lawsuit, Vint Cerf, Senior Vice President for MCI Telecommunications, also known as "the father of the Internet," said, "Spamming is the scourge of electronic mail and newsgroups on the Internet. It can seriously interfere with the operation of public services, to say nothing of the effect it may have on any individual=EDs mail system. Spammers are, in effect, taking resources away from users and service suppliers without compensation and without authorization. MCI was the first in the industry to publicly announce its policy against spamming and will be watching the decision in this case with great interest." The court order, entered last Wednesday, September 17, by Travis County District Judge Scott McCown, prohibits Nowak, his company, and those "acting in concert" with him, from using Ms. Parker's domain name in any electronic mailings, or from using any Internet domain name as a return address without the owner's permission. Judge McCown also ordered Mr. Nowak to respond to discovery requests served upon him and set the case for trial on November 10, 2020. Joining Ms. Parker in the lawsuit are her business partners, Peter Rauch, and her husband, Patrick Parker, who also used the domain name. Also suing Nowak is Ms. Parker's Internet service provider at the time, Zilker Internet Park, which had to deal with the consequences of the flood of returned junk mail messages. They are joined by two Internet interest groups, the Texas Internet Service Providers' Association and EFF-Austin. Both groups fear the damage done to the Internet by mass mailings of the sort at issue in this lawsuit. Ms. Parker said she was pleased with the court's ruling. "Judge McCown seemed to quickly understand the harm that this type of irresponsible use of the Internet can cause people like me and small businesses like Zilker," she said. "We hope that this ruling sends a message not only to the defendants, but to everyone who is abusing the Internet in this way." Pete Kennedy, the lawyer who is representing Ms. Parker and the others, commented that, "While Internet service providers are trying to combat "spam" with technical means, there is also a need to set a clear legal precedent that people do not have the right to send Internet junk mail and use other people's e-mail accounts as their personal junkyard." # # # For more information, contact: Plaintiffs: Tracy LaQuey Parker and Patrick Parker (512) 454-7748 Smoot Carl-Mitchell and John Quarterman, Zilker Internet Park (512) 451-76= 20 Gene Crick, Texas Internet Service Providers Association (TISPA) (512) 303-1021 Jon Lebkowsky, EFF-Austin (512) 477-5566 x. 171 (day), (512) 444-5175 (eve) Lawyers: Peter D.

Claiming to be acting against terrorism, the Squad demanded that Easynet PLC, Internet Freedom's UK Internet Service Provider, remove the entire content of the site from the web. Internet Freedom is one of the foremost anti-censorship campaigns in the UK. The web site featured the latest Net censorship news, links to other anti-censorship campaigns, carefully researched articles about censorship and a regular controversy feature. The section of the site that was alleged to contain 'terrorist material' related to a feature on the Euskal Herria Journal - a New York based political publication. The online magazine supports Basque independence and contains maps of the region, cartoons and an online petition to the Spanish government. The Journal had been originally suspended by its US Internet Service Provider following an extended email campaign which brought the host server to a standstill. In opposition to its censorship, Internet Freedom, along with a number of other organisations and individuals, hosted a copy of the suspended site or 'mirror site', together with a bulletin board for Net users to express their views. As a consequence of the Squad's actions, Internet Freedom has been forced to move its news operations to its US site at where anybody with access to the web may examine the site and judge the content for themselves. Chris Ellison, co-founder of CIF said: Those who argue in favour of censorship on the Net claim that it is to prevent the spread of pornography or paedophilia. Yesterday's act of blatant political censorship shows the consequences of accepting the need for regulations and controls. Whatever one might think about the Euskal Herria Journal and its entirely ordinary content, it is important that they be allowed put their views across. We are calling on the whole of the Net community to support us by mirroring Internet Freedom's site. Internet Freedom has always prided itself on exposing acts of censorship that have been dressed in some other garb. Now we have been met with the most blatant act of political censorship imaginable: the shutting down of our site. If there was ever a time for Net users to defend free speech, that time is now.

And so it is -- after much grieving and maudlin songs -- that the CULT OF THE DEAD COW releases two file packs of five files each, anoints one new member and expands on our work with the Hong Kong Blondes. As our young people skip off to school, lunch pails bursting with wholesome treats and whistling their favorite video bits, we at the CULT OF THE DEAD COW DISTANCE LEARNING CENTER have labored long and hard to shine a light in the darkness -- sort of like high-beams along the information superhighway. Our crack team of learning experts have put together a wack packet of mind expanding mayhem in the hope that it will be the one thing that keeps our youth from purchasing firearms, or seeking employment in Redmond. We take special pride in announcing a new member to our ranks who goes by the name, SirDystic. He is rumored to be the child of Seymour Cray and an unknown showgirl. We found him living in a dumpster with a Palm Pilot, a case of Astroglide and his latest text file. Remember the Internet worm? Imagine the same thing, only _bigger_. An automated, systemic infection of the Internet -- all made possible because of the success of Bill Gates' dream of a computer in every home, running Windows. With a little work and SirDystic's file, this is just one possibility. It was a long hot summer for the HERD. The heat off the flashpacks and klieg lights at DefCon and H.O.P.E. were trying, but they come with the territory. Grandmaster Ratte's breakthrough performance at DefCon was the talk of Las Vegas, as was Microsoft's idle promise to give cDc Hacker Laureate Mudge the keys to the kingdom. Kaiser Wilhelm's star braun-nosers, Karan Khanna (head of NT Marketing) and Paul Leech (one of the main developers and author of the CIFS specification) promised Mudge a subscription to DevNet for a year and a link to the L0pht's site from Microsoft's Web page. Waiting - still waiting. And of the many happy memories at H.O.P.E., the CULT OF THE DEAD COW'S official announcement of our strategic alliance with the Hong Kong Blondes was received to deafening applause. The Hong Kong Blondes are a group of computer scientists and human rights activists who have taken the revolution on-line. They are active in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.
