Putting things in perspective

There are two basic places to eavesdrop on pretty much any communications system: at the end points and during transmission. This means that a cellphone attacker can either compromise one of the two phones or eavesdrop on the cellular network. Both approaches have their benefits and drawbacks. The NSA seems to prefer bulk eavesdropping on the planet’s major communications links and then picking out individuals of interest. Other countries don’t have the same worldwide reach that the NSA has, and must use other methods to intercept cellphone calls. -- Bruce Schneier
