Personal Privacy is Dead And Getting Deadlier With Nanotechnolgy Personal privacy concerns with the advent of Nanocomputing

Abstract:
Just imagine a spy invisible to your eye trace out your name, address, passport, driving license, SSN, health conditions, shopping or net surfing habits and just about everything else that governs your life in a day. All this is possible with the use of nanotechnology.

Since the September 11 attacks, the spy business has experienced a post-Cold War renaissance with projects that were plodding along for years getting a new lease of life.

For instance, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is pouring funds into nanocomputing because National Security Agency (NSA) is looking for faster ways to break codes. Till now, the NSA could break only up to 140 or so prime number encryptions and each set of decryption needed to be done serially.
