NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden plans to work on easy-to-use privacy tools

Snowden reiterates that protecting privacy doesn't end but only starts with encryption

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden doesn’t yet know whether he’ll be spending the next year in a U.S. prison or an undisclosed location in Russia. Nevertheless, Snowden hopes to work on anti-surveillance technologies in the future.

During a nearly 90-minute discussion at the Hackers on Planet Earth Conference (HOPE) on Saturday, in which Snowden participated via Google Hangouts, the whistle blower said he wants to work on tools that help people better protect their privacy.

“I think we the people—you the people, you in this room right now, have both the means and the capability to help build a better future by encoding our rights into the programs and protocols upon which we rely every day,” Snowden said.“And that’s what a lot of my future work is going to be involved in, and I hope you’ll join me.”
