Netra is NSA like Surveillance

Indian Government Spy System Netra

Indian Government Spy System NetraIndian Intelligence Agencies are deploying NETRA (which is “eye” in Hindi), an Indian version of the American NSA’s Prism. Able to monitor phone calls on Skype and Google Talk, search for keywords on social networks such as Bomb, kill, attack, etc the Indian project for Network Traffic Analysis (NETRA) is being developed to rival or exceed the Prism capabilities. One unique piece, according to this article, is that NETRA is hardware based and would have to be installed at the Indian ISP level. Does that mean government control of ISP’s? Maybe they sneak these into the ISP? It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
