people but does this intense of a safe i mean in a way the streets like a kind of dangerous because that coveted c.c.t.v. but no one's watching that's what's interesting about these two to be culture it takes away like the joy of having initiatives like natural filter. photographer henrietta williams for george. to ring of steel around london's financial district. security gates and surveillance cameras anyone who enters is registered electronically and anything out of the ordinary triggers security protocols. even seemingly innocuous things like video cameras. of the five not if you live in your ticket with your car you can move along with your fear you can film whichever way we want. you to do what. you want to do with the police rely on the private security
for that so if i fall through the malls you know let's pull it out of the city and in fact in most cases the streets along this walk well given to the developers so that they could see all of the press tries in the street but also installing the defense and surveillance against terrorist attack i get sort of. phone trees in the. surveillance systems here and just simple cameras. anyone who behaves unexpectedly triggers an. imperceptibly humans can observe and evaluate behavior through the smart cameras without anyone noticing. if the camera detects an unusual event the subject is marked.
you. know one of the world's leading scientists behind the developments of smarts cameras is professor james or one of kingston university. systems his team of developing can detect suspicious activity even before a crime occurs. the way is to present large volumes of data over many months possibly years and so that enables the system to develop a statistical model of what is normal and maybe what is abnormal and so then there is an automatic flagging of anything that is considered abnormal. in locations where thousands of people pass in front of the cameras every day it's even more difficult for the systems to determine what is normal behavior and what isn't. are these people simply on their way to work or does this group hide a terrorist. anyone suspected of crime in the u.k.
quickly loses their right to privacy. the face what units of the london police presents faces of suspects to the public using footage from security cameras posted on the internet. this is a gentleman of interest. and there's a recess appears. through a spot in there so it goes on a public website and so yeah i'm reaching here decide to reauthorize it. but empress of men. and their images now gone into the system can be viewed by the public on the face or saw on the face which. make neville is head of image recognition it's scotland yard if you use this kind of crowd sourced policing via the internet represents a powerful new weapon in the fight against crime. yes i was
a paper of register for they they are and they tell you not only in the united kingdom people are very much that they quite accept the c.c.t.v. and the police to a good job with the c.c.t.v. and they are happy to identify criminals as not so much a fear of surveillance at all take in the united kingdom as possible on mainland europe. over the past decade the u.k. has been constantly seeking new ways to combat the perceived threat of terrorism. at this military base two hours outside of london the newest techniques are getting put through that paces. mark lawrence is one of the new breed of experts offering instruction in the east of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones. you know official government sources who publicly talk about the effectiveness of this new technique only mark lawrence who speak with us. so one planning to do now is hopefully track patrick than either on his way there or is way back if
i don't see him in a few odds i will fly to the horse track and see if we can pick him back. the one takes place across three miles. ok so we've got patrick we've located in he's in the trunk so we're going to fly towards him the. big brother approaches unnoticed from the air. when the target is discovered the u.a.e. becomes a constant companion it's a height of one hundred twenty meters. and what we're doing is using a g.p.s. lock to do this sort of a double click here we can just keep the subject in the center string and screen and also at the same time the unit will follow him back with us fly this way. you go. to work yeah we got you. in the house and coming out as well.
so that's why it's good for covert surveillance. would be possible that we in the future see drones flying over our heads maybe not directly overhead but definitely the police are using these now they're using them for surveillance work and not just sneaking around spying on people there's a lot of people seem to think so sometimes to catch the bad things going on you need to be a bit i could call it sly or just secretive about it. there are plans to fit the drones with improved cameras incorporating face recognition technology. quietly public privacy is being exchanged for greater security. michael chandler is the head of vanquish security back in london he's also keen to demonstrate some of his techniques. some of which are alarmingly effective. like how did you get that well basically what we've done was we remotely sourced in
the much fun i recorded a pre-determined time and that recording then uploaded to our online platform where it really yeah the phone was bugged whilst it was left unattended on a table during an interview with the police. professor was also monitored. here's the photograph taken in the play station i believe. that one and there's this one here the course so obviously there were phone calls ok text messages which has been the only one we have an overview of the location which is because it's only the location for this afternoon but in general it's also got all the photographs that have been taken and also the all the voice recordings that we have made so you just can't see everything without my knowledge actually
basically. ok it works only that. there is absolutely no way for you to be able to find a device on your phone is totally hidden only we could only we would be able to find it ok so this is the photograph that we found in your phone currently i don't know what they are but what i can do is have a look at the times they were taken and then cross or cross or upset with one of the recorders we have also the location. we can show you that you were. a play station on seymour street that goes through g.p.s. this is a g.p.s. report coming from your device and that's all legal this is totally legal absolutely legal yes well i think. this demonstration has revealed it's becoming easier to covertly track individuals using modern technology. and it's happening far more often than we realize. according to
n.s.a. analyst william binney american security agencies now have the technology. for their story at all they're collecting it all and storing so the large storage facility that's what that's all about and the point is that they hope by storing it all now that sometime in the future they'll figure out how to go back into it and figure out what's important so they can retroactively analyze it that's why they need five zeta bytes of stories that you tough the story at all. you can the u.s. government two years he was responsible for electronic espionage a decade ago when you began to bug u.s. citizens who left the saudis to fight against terrorism seemed to change the rules of engagement. i mean there
are virtually is nothing in the network that they can't have a copy of if they start targeting youth so so so what they already have your data i can't find out what they're doing with my data. but i know they have it ok. so i make sure i write in there whatever i whatever i had to say about them i say that in there so that when they collect that they know what i'm thinking of them. with specially developed software. without his realizing. this is a promotional video from the money factor of. a surveillance program designed for the police. it is widely used across western europe and the principle is always the same. the authorities infect the victim's computer with money when they hide in a fake software update. the unsuspecting music clicks my case and the police can
i don't like i don't like. being cut off. except as an ecovillage that the spiritual side is destructive. yeah i tried to convince her to try to preach that it was a sect but it's dangerous that she had to leave it was a story she had lost her mind. you know you she will come back i know it was and i will wait but even if it means i must wait until my dying day. lucky. right to see. her straight.
and i think the church. on our reporters twitter. and instagram. would be among. the odds. choose your language killing spree killer though if. someone. chooses good it's the consents to. choose the opinions that immigrate to. choose the stories that impact the lives choose access to often. from around the world meeting. the theme of this year's meeting the. keynote
speaker jacob knows what it means to be. he's a close friend and supporter of julian assange. to be free from suspicion is one of the first freedoms that is important for being free in the rest of your life when you are followed around when you are being investigated because of the whim of someone this is the beginning of the end of your freedom. routinely intercept american citizens' emails. the. americans. conversations. google searches. text messages. orders. bank records. but there was general alexander some most powerful person in the world probably even more powerful than the president of the united states or any of
the leader of any other country. first of all because we know for a fact. we know for a fact from our client that the n.s.a. wasn't tracked during dragnet surveillance of all of those things well i mean i don't really use a mobile phone for anything except security. so i don't really use a mobile phone i choose not to use facebook because i really think it's. just you know systems that make tradeoffs that are not democratically decided. the icelandic capital of reykjavik is the perfect location from which to investigate the technologies states can use to track their citizeness you know when you get ideas from. this infamous video from the right. those involved with the release of the video suddenly found themselves facing up to a powerful opponent. jones to to. the media and to wiki leaks
send photos from the video to the international press. this activity transformed into a national security targets and to a right to did you to prove a c. was repealed even though there were no legal proceedings against. my person. within three days without my knowledge with me. we. do have very bad. the united states to go into people you know even parliamentarians. countries to. matters. most remarkable about this story is that the key to john's. that it is a member of the icelandic parliaments. furthermore twitter was not the only source
of private digital information to hand dates are over to the us security agencies. like looking at what experts say in this field in the states for example they speculate it is face. perhaps skype or ip holes no five but the judge says refuses to buy acknowledge the requests from the barriers to unseal its companies it is. jones that it did nothing illegal when she released the video but it was enough to warrant invasive snooping from the u.s. security agency's. me. my younger son older son. some people that i've got to know later i used to work with. three years ago the icelandic people took to the streets the banking crisis hit hit the small island nation hot the icelandic saucepan revolution ultimately forced the
general election. to johns that it was elected to the new parliament but for the u.s. government she remained a target. you know. today jones to take campaigns but it's to rights and self-determination she wants iceland to become a safe haven for sensitive data. they want to put a stop to the prying eyes of the state. yet they want us all the world cherry picked all the best. e-mails for example would be protected in the same way as written correspondence. there is absolutely no country in the world this is actually properly addressed the fact how easily it is for governments and corporations to mine through our private data we in iceland are
focusing on creating a standard and setting an example and then it would be really ideal and this is one of the thoughts behind the spending want to meet initiative. be ideal if we can you know with these new set of laws create a haven in such a way that you know i would like to see it spread to other countries. the police can shut down illegal sites as was the case with this raid on the submarine for online file sharing site the pirate bank. the problem is with the legal information from other providers that may be lost in the process. to protect this data from any access it needs to be in an unreachable place in the future that place could be in iceland the idea of iceland has an inverse tax saving. of say a place of protection because by the simplest information. free speech protecting
people against touching it is a very nice woman. stukely something which. it will take time so you know. it flew for a long time every country it be a search it. but the gates of jones the who continue to use facebook twitter and google claiming she's a guinea pig in the monitored space. she says whoever spied on her feels they can do it with impunity and that's how the case should be a warning. and it is a temptation to go into somebody's home without them ever being able to know about it and then i'm referring to my online home for it is just as sacred as my offline home this is where all my private stuff is this is where all my personal matters are this is where all my thoughts and all matty and movement can be traced
so you know hands off my home. a similar case of monitoring is currently on reveling in berlin. under a home is a noted sociologist who is teaching at the home boat university. for months he was shadowed and monitored. suspected is the leader of a militant group they committed arson attacks in berlin in two thousand and seven. that's far them off while i stay only a small sum of what was the morning of the thirty first of july so some a day in the morning before seven and a sauna and woke up to a pounding on the front door and then a mass of armed men fell on me with six eight and three me to the ground as my
hands fixed behind my back. that went on as off you don't get the impression that you're in a film. because they behave as in one of the thrillers all action movies. give us a callous or so as i was already aware that there is such a thing as house searches and arrests as if that's directed also against left wing activists still listed as a that was already going through my head but i could not understand what they actually had to do with me directly at home so it was an abstract fair designed at that point. andrei home was arrested by special detachment and brought to federal court in cannes row. only later did home learn that he had been systematically monitored. the federal investigators that been studying his academic as ace in the widespread use of expressions such as gentrification and casualisation had inflamed their suspicions these were
terms also used by the militant group is it claimed responsibility for the berlin arson attacks. investigating authorities had created a character great to use in the investigation which suggested suspects should have extraordinary political and historical knowledge and the scientific and analytical ability to execute the attacks. following his arrest the investigating judge ordered holmes detention. after thirty days in solitary confinement the federal court ruled that there was no strong suspicion. for the first time since his arrest home is free and for the first time he learns about the surveillance protocols surrounding him here excerpts from the minutes reveal a detailed investigation into all aspects of holmes life.
the investigators monitored home social environment in couldn't find any evidence to incriminate him. but this only caused them to intensify their surveillance. according to their logic home is an intellectual who is highly conspiratorial and expertly concealing his misdeeds. that they may be on the tail of an innocent person didn't seem to occur to his press u.s. . consulate you have a what you that's what they were completely monitored our personal e-mails have been right that they have basically found ways even before the online search to gain access to our computers. or the stock of there is also a sense of political outrage in the country. over the loss of freedom to choose what the main ingredients of domestic social values should be. elementary because
those personal freedoms are trampled in the course of these kinds of investigations and over from the ice and little plastic also cause because it's then. finally anyone who now search is underway home on the internet will receive a huge number of results in many articles linking him to terrorism. for the rest of his life and ray home will be tainted by the phrase terrorist suspects. people are more conscious of the need to protect their digital privacy than ever before the cool for digital self defense is heard everywhere. emails are sent encrypted but many are choosing to do without social networks like facebook and twitter. in vienna this group meet once a week for a cypher party they discuss how to make themselves invisible in the network. whether the theory taught is the goal of the dough when the people is operating. on
a anonymity that is from web browsing chats or other internet services to make it anonymous. of the kind of. until now encryption techniques have only been in the domain of the authorities in the late internet geeks these people want to spread the word. the part that sums are psychopaths is a form spontaneously all over the planet the interest of the population has risen in the course of more government control and more profiling by large companies such as google facebook and others and the interpretation and openness of this profound data is a major problem and a major threat. when
you bareback with the internet you're back with big brother so maybe it's a good idea just like we understood with aids in the eighty's we have a personal responsibility to not infect our friends and lovers and neighbors and when you use the internet without any crypto without anonymity without privacy what you do is you present a transitive risk to your community and probably even to your country certainly to yourself.
a great economy right now it's a great economy if you're rich and were trying to get the wall to wall street cranked up again if you've got all your money in stocks it's beginning to show a little life it's not if you're an average person in this country i would i have to tend to agree with doug i mean i see a lot of public relations here i don't see a lot of really good policy for the average person i just like to pick up on an earlier point that doug made though which i also thought was quite important and significant especially in so far as historians can provide value by looking for trends and putting things in context which was the assassination of a u.s. citizen overseas really you might say the power of hiking to have life or death over their citizens without without it an open trial. do we speak your language i mean some of the will not advance. news programs and documentaries and spanish more matters to you breaking news a little. when the two bangles stories.
