   Google is racing to encrypt the torrents of information that flow
   among its data centers around the world, in a bid to thwart
   snooping by the NSA as well as the intelligence agencies of foreign
   governments, company officials said on Friday.

   The move by Google is among the most concrete signs yet that recent
   revelations about the National Security Agency’s sweeping
   surveillance efforts have provoked significant backlash within an
   American technology industry that U.S. government officials long
   courted as a potential partner in spying programs.
