personal opinion: any hardware or software that (either)

So the government of Kazakhstan is MITM'ing all SSL'ed traffic lobste.rs/s/uqj8nq/mitm_on_all

The way they are doing this is by adding a Certificate Authority (CA) that allows them to snoop all traffic.

This is, by the way, why SSL is criticized as being "only as secure as the weakest CA in your system". Here it's deliberate, but that's a problem in general.

Just updated my Philadelphia-based network infrastructure exploration site with new things I found on the street, networksofphilly.org

It also keeps an index of various surveillance-based info requests open with the city police.

Consider starting one for your city!

when you think about it, the idea that software should scale is actually really weird. "sure this garden is nice, but how nice can it be if it doesn't grow to cover the entire surface of the earth?"
