Amazon Hints At Details On Its CIA Franken-Cloud 67

coondoggie writes "Amazon Web Services recently won a reported $600 million contract to build the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) a cloud. But that cloud will not look like any other cloud on the planet. Amazon will build the cloud using AWS architectures and AWS will manage it, but executives hinted that it will not be accessed the way other customers use AWS services through the public Internet. 'We're managing the operations in the data center,' Andy Jassy, Amazon's senior vice president and the head of the company's cloud computing division AWS said about the CIA deal. 'It's our hardware, it's our networking.'"

    Your point has merit, but I'm just curious...

    What data do you have that you don't want the CIA/NSA to have?

    Everything they don't already have.

    Your tax returns? They have that already. Your bank account info? They have that already.

    Actually the IRS should have that, they're not supposed to be sharing that information with the CIA or NSA either....

    Unless you have secret plans to do something illegal, I highly doubt you have much they don't already have access to, much less do they care about you.

    Until they turn your own desires into public crimes? Besides if you've got nothing to hide comrade, you don't care if we listen to everything you do, right? Ask any former East German how they feel about the Stasi...

    I'm just asking the question

    I'm asking the question if the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution means anything to you or anybody fucking else in this country anymore. It's fuckers like you that has allowed the surveillance state to take hold. Keep watching the TV buddy....

Promising costs nothing, it's the delivering that kills you.
