An internal agency memo noted that among British analysts shown a presentation on the NSA's progress: "Those not already briefed were gobsmacked!"

Those British analysts really dig deep when they head on out to do their analysing. As shown above, they've uncovered (no pun intended, as you'll see if a bit) the NSA gobsmacking (whatever that means, but it sounds like fun) individuals sans underwear.

On second thought, I don't think I would want anybody gobsmacking me donning or sans briefs or boxers.

What are alternatives to these protocol?

I still don't understand why people think, that by spying on somebody will bring them better progress in anything.

SSL is safe if you do it right - strong cipher + PFS + certificate pinning.

Not anymore it's not. RSA has warned today against using RSA encryption because the NSA apparently compromised the RNGs.

Bitcointalk hasn't even implemented it's certificates correctly after - what? 4 years? 5?

Nothing is safe. I remember one thing. increasing the length, with complex combination, which can slow down the attack.

Also, limit the ports as The first door broken but not the second one.

This is one of the option, but the length should get longer to increase the worst processing time.

Nothing can be fully blocked. Even the two-door safe. It is just time matters.
