"ISPs Already Violating Net Neutrality To Block Encryption And Make Everyone Less Safe Online" (Techdirt): https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20141012/06344928801/revealed-isps-already-violating-net-neutrality-to-block-encryption-make-everyone-less-safe-online.shtml "In the second instance, Golden Frog shows that a wireless broadband Internet access provider is interfering with its users' ability to encrypt their SMTP email traffic. This broadband provider is overwriting the content of users' communications and actively blocking STARTTLS encryption. This is a man-in-the-middle attack that prevents customers from using the applications of their choosing and directly prevents users from protecting their privacy." - - - If it's true that an ISP is purposely tampering with SMTP responses to try disable STARTTLS, it's utterly horrendous and unacceptable. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (firstname.lastname@example.org): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com/privacy-info Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org/pfir-info Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy I am a consultant to Google -- I speak only for myself, not for them.
