Comment: Grand Coalition of Supervisors




One topic that are each technically and politically interested people in this country employed repeatedly over the years, the various attempts by the policy, the Internet and the lives of us all to better control and monitor. Whether it’s data retention (Stasi 2.0) or censorship systems (Zensursula) is that ideas are not the politicians.
Comment: Grand Coalition of Supervisors

Attention, here’s a political issue! Of course we know that some read here just because they want to be informed on the latest apps and gadgets and other technical topics rather so not want to read here, it is the intellectual property right for press publishers or sexism . Those who think so, the scrolls please at this point simply to another post 🙂

First and foremost is what the thrust of the new policy to the “master data information.” Law enforcement agencies need to know for the investigation of certain crimes, who used at a specific time on a specific IP address. But not only law enforcement, also on behalf of content recyclers will such requests often asked thousands of times per application and judges almost always nod. The aim of the Government is not all simple enough so that now legally an electronic interface to be introduced to the inventory data query can query the authorities without judicial authority directly relevant data. Direct access to this interface to employees of the following posts have: Federal, Federal police, customs, protection of the Constitution, the Federal Intelligence Service and Military Counterintelligence.

Under a court reservation at least access to passwords, PINs and PUK are made – unless a secret service wants to access, it is about a seizure or there is an urgent cases. In such situations, is to dispense with the judicial authority, which now does not necessarily always work as good as you’d hoped for as a citizen. Those who want to can sometimes in Udo Vetter Law Blog for ” house search looking “.

When talking about the new initiative in the view of the control of the citizens on the Internet is really great coalition that has formed here : In addition to the CDU / CSU and – strange for a party that is in an election year will again pose as “civil rights party” – FDP now supports the SPD faction the matter with a joint amendment to the government proposal, which calls for only cosmetic changes. One or the other may recognize the irony of the fact that in addition to the Greens in the Bundestag just the left remains as opposition to these plans. But there are of course people outside Parliament, political parties and organizations fighting against such plans: Whether the makers of , the Digital Society , the AK stocks , the Chaos Computer Club , the Pirate Party …

We can not cover all aspects and also not in the depth that is needed for a comprehensive information. After all, this is a topic that always comes in various forms again (or never disappears) and the above (and some more) organizations deal with it for years. We can only point to such issues, pick up some tips and otherwise just urge everyone to deal with it – because they affect us all. We all save more and more of our data online in “the cloud” and even if we may trust the providers of the services, then there are very many who are interested in these data, and these are not just companies and evil “hacker” but unfortunately, we selected governments.

Of course you can also retreat to the position that you have nothing to hide – a legitimate opinion that for my personal taste is a little shortsighted – but at least address the issue and should form their own opinion every mobile geek.

Disclosure: I was long a member of the SPD, had between sympathizing with the left and am now the second time a member of the Pirate Party, and with politics in general and the whole monitoring issues in particular, I am concerned then a few years more or less intense …
