NSA Wiretaps are Legal and Other Annoying Facts - Branden Miller Hack3rcon 4 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

NSA Wiretaps are Legal and Other Annoying Facts - Branden Miller
Hack3rcon 4

In the last 10 years many government organizations have been accused of breaking your constitutional rights by using "warrantless" wiretapping. This presentation will look at the legal aspects of collection and will separate the myths from facts.
Speakers
Branden Miller

Errata from Braden:
 

*****Note: I got a couple of things wrong in my presentation. 

1) The coauthor of the 2nd Amendment that I was referring to is George Mason. Some really good quotes on the 2nd Amendment can be found here and here. Before discussing what the founders "intended," read what they actually said!

2) I eluded to the 17th Amendment as a joke but got the timeframe wrong. The 17th amendment forced States to hold direct elections for Senators in 1913. Prior to this, some States still allowed  Senators to be appointed by those State's governors. This intent of the 17th Amendment was to stop the corruption of Senators at the State level. This worked! However, Senators are now corrupted at the national level.
