| Bruce Schneier, whose close association with BT left him highly constrained on what he could say about Phorm in public (but whom we devoutly hope had a lot to say to them in private) opines, in a Q&A with ZDNet UK:- |
"There are numerous organisations using deep packet inspection at the moment, for reasons ranging from law enforcement to behavioural advertising. Do you think using deep packet inspection for behavioural advertising is necessary?
I don't like it, I think it's an invasion of privacy, but we live in a world where anything legal can be done. As long as they are allowed, companies will do it — because otherwise they would be crazy not to. In the US, we have separate carriers and content. The carrier is not supposed to touch the content. In the US DPI is an extremely bad can of worms."
Lots more interesting comment at the link.
