Hello list,

Jacob, any insight on how the interview took place from a technical point
of view?

I suppose preventive measures were taken from all parties in order to
avoid leaking Snowden identity as it would have put an end to his grand
plan, even more as he was still in Hawaii at the time of the interview.
How did you/he managed the risk here specially as Snowden knew about the
full scope of the NSA monitoring program and you didn't.

The only info I have seen on this is Snowden allegedly created new set of
PGP keys[1], but it can't have been enough for him.

Also, a quote on the cryptome page[2] says "The following questions are
excerpted from a larger interview that covered numerous topics, many of
which are highly technical in nature". Is the full interview available
somewhere? If not why?

Just curious, thanks.
