EC recommends OSS to fight Echelon

Author: JT Smith

Slashdot: "The European Commission Resolution on
Echelon encourages the Commission and Member States "to promote
software projects whose source text is made public", to lay down a
standard for the level of security of e-mail software packages, placing
those packages whose source code has not been made public in the "least reliable"
category," and "systematically to encrypt e-mails, so that ultimately encryption becomes
the norm"."
