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.
