Legal "Britain's spy agency GCHQ has secretly gained access to the network of cables which carry the world's phone calls and internet traffic and has started to process vast streams of sensitive personal information which it is sharing with its American partner, the National Security Agency. The sheer scale of the agency's ambition is reflected in the titles of its two principal components: Mastering the Internet and Global Telecoms Exploitation, aimed at scooping up as much online and telephone traffic as possible. This is all being carried out without any form of public acknowledgement or debate." Woah.

"It's multiple keys, a zone signing key and a key signing key, you can't get access to the key signing key without people finding out."

The keys I'm talking about are ICANN's root keys at http://data.iana.org/root-anchors/ "CN=ICANN Root CA"

The question was never whether you or I can get access to them, but whether the NSA could, and I don't think we're any closer to closure than when we started. Are you ok with leaving it as an open question? ;)
