McAfee announces plans for a device, called ‘D-Central’, which would be resistant to government surveillance by creating localized, super-secure networks. It is the first product from his company, Future Tense Central. McAfee claims the device will be so effective that governments will be likely to ban its use. If this happens he promises to sell it in other countries, claiming “this is coming and cannot be stopped.”
I’m 68 years old and if you can just give me any small amount of information about yourself, I promise you within three days, I can turn on the camera on your computer at home and watch you do whatever you’re doing, provided you’re still connected to the net. If I can do it, any idiot can do it. We live in a very insecure world with a very insecure communications platform.
