PRISM: France has its wiretapping scandal

The Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure – or in German: General Directorate for External Security “- is the French foreign intelligence service and who is now just get the headlines as the PRISM and Tempora stories in the U.S. and the UK.

The DGSE in France systematically monitored connection data for telephone calls, text messages and e-mails when French lines are used for communication. The system should be very similar to the PRISM program. Also here are the big sites like Apple , Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and Facebook scrutinized, but will “only” detained who, when, how long is communicating with whom – and not about the content of the communication.

For this, in turn, the police may use this data already active in France, to convict offenders. This should be protected even in France legally so, the program therefore runs in the regular framework, although the Data Protection Commission clearly is opposed. As the French “Le Monde” reported some top politicians were inaugurated, but sworn to secrecy.

So slowly we can finally abandon the idea of ​​us probably that there is a State that is not meticulously looking at it, so what drive its citizens on Facebook, Google and co.
