Like Duh...

All they have to do is break the encryption on about 100 certs for the most popular websites and they would be able to decrypt 75% (lions share) of all encrypted web traffic.

How long would it really take them to break SSL certs with the worlds most powerful cray supercomputers?

And who says that Microsoft and others CA's aren't loading already broken ciphers (public private key pairs) into windows then giving the NSA the a jump start on the entire process.

And who says that this isn't already a requirement of some BS national security directive law, we don't even know about, that only select (corrupt committee members of congress) even know about.
