Edward Snowden and Bunnie Huang present "Against the
law: countering lawful abuses of digital surveillance", original research at the MIT Media Lab's Forbidden Research conference.
Description: "The FBI argues that universal government
access to personal devices is justified by the threat of terrorism, but around the world, digital surveillance is leading
to the disappearance of journalists, human-rights workers, and dissidents. History tells us that many jurisdictions can secure
easy access to court orders to monitor civil society, particularly those with poor records on human rights. Can researchers
provide a means to protect the work of journalists that is more reliable than law, and what are the collateral risks?"
