"The NSA Is Building the Country's Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say)"
 March 15, 2012,


  "But "this is more than just a data center," says one senior intelligence
   official who until recently was involved with the program. The mammoth
   Bluffdale center will have another important and far more secret role
   that until now has gone unrevealed. It is also critical, he says, for
   breaking codes. And code-breaking is crucial, because much of the data
   that the center will handle - financial information, stock transactions,
   business deals, foreign military and diplomatic secrets, legal documents,
   confidential personal communications - will be heavily encrypted.
   According to another top official also involved with the program,
   the NSA made an enormous breakthrough several years ago in its ability
   to cryptanalyze, or break, unfathomably complex encryption systems
   employed by not only governments around the world but also many average
   computer users in the US. The upshot, according to this official:
   "Everybody's a target; everybody with communication is a target.""
