Snowden wants more anti-snooping software

Urges developers to pull finger

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, called on supporters at a hacking conference to develop easy-to-use technologies to stuff up government surveillance programmes.

Snowden told the Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE) via video link from Moscow, said he intends to devote much of his time to promoting such technologies. While this will make him friends in the hacker community, it will probably not earn him much love from his Russian hosts, other than the Russian mafia who will be able to go undetected and not have to bribe so many police.

At the HOPE hacking conference there were several talks detailed approaches for thwarting government surveillance, including a system known as SecureDrop that is designed to allow people to anonymously leak documents to journalists.

The conference featured about 100 presentations on topics ranging from surveillance to hacking elevators and home routers.
