Government Tools to Reveal Personal Details

The government has tools of its own that are extremely effective in gathering information.  The threat of terrorism has added significant weight to the arguments of those who lobby for more powerful means to gather information.  The fear of some is that once the data is accumulated, no matter how legitimate the reason, it might be misused.

The government’s tool of choice is a collection of three programs known as the DragonWare Suite.  The programs that comprise the DragonWare Suite are known as Carnivore, Packeteer and Coolminer.  No information on these programs has been officially released; however, it is believed that together, these applications allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to collect packets of data from the Internet, assemble them to recreate copies of the original e-mail messages or files being transferred, and analyze the recreated items to identify specific patterns of behavior.

While a collection of utilities like DragonWare could be used to identify terrorists planning an attack, it could also be used to identify citizens legally expressing a point of view that is contrary to a given group such as a political organization.  It is also important to realize that the collected data could be vulnerable to hackers and others who might desire to use this information for criminal purposes.

Another government tool called MOSAIC Threat Assessment Systems is a product that screens threats against public figures.  Instead of using the resource-exhausting method of chasing down every threat, this system helps officials to evaluate the seriousness of a given threat.
