[liberationtech] NSA-GCHQ meeting on Tor (with slides!)

After going over the presentation, it seems as if GCHQ did all the
work. Does NSA actually have good computer scientists working for it
(not including mathematicians / cryptographers)? E.g., I have been to
a workshop in London a few months ago (in an unrelated field), and
instantly met someone collaborating with GCHQ. Never met someone
working with NSA, however. NSA's CAE CO program, which could perhaps
be considered their vanguard of academic CS cooperation, is just four
little-known universities / colleges.

I wonder what the current state of affairs is, though. The slides
suggest that the global passive interception infrastructure is not
suitable for correlation-based deanonymization, so NSA/GCHQ need
“access to nodes”. But that was 6 years ago.
