On December 20th, Reuters broke “Exclusive: Secret contract tied NSA and security industry pioneer“. On December 23rd, Mikko Hypponen wrote “An Open Letter to the Chiefs of EMC and RSA“.
I can’t accept this is happening, but Mikko wrote such a letter shows us the article is almost true. For NSA, it might be their regular jobs. But for RSA, what a shame!! Of course, we should read not only Reuters side articles but also the opposite side ones like RSA RESPONSE TO MEDIA CLAIMS REGARDING NSA RELATIONSHIP.
It is a sad fact that RSA’s credibility was destroyed.
