Linda Burger, Technology Transfer Program, Joseph Witt, NSA

Niagarafiles is a new information sharing program from the National Security Agency. But it's not classified, and it's not even the NSA's anymore. The agency has made it open-source so anyone can use it, or change it. It's part of the NSA's Technology Transfer Program. Linda Burger is director of the Technology Transfer Program at the National Security Agency, and Joseph Witt is development lead at NSA. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Linda said NSA isn't new to the open-source concept.

Sharon Bradford Franklin, Executive Director, Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board

Its original intention was ostensibly to help protect the U.S. from terrorist threats. But Edward Snowden's reveal of the extent of the National Security Agency's bulk telephone records program planted seeds of doubt in many minds. Records indicate the NSA was even monitoring domestic calls. Sharon Bradford Franklin is the executive director of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on the bulk data collection program, and whether it should even continue.

Sharon Bradford Franklin, Executive Director, Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board

The National Security Agency's collection of Internet data may be massive, but it's constitutional. An independent agency, the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, has released a thorough report on how federal agencies track foreigners' communications under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The law has come under fire since Edward Snowden leaked documents on NSA programs a year ago. Sharon Bradford Franklin, executive director of the PCLOB, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to talk about the board's investigation.

Michael Leiter, Executive Vice President for Strategy and Business Development, Leidos

It may be unpopular, but bulk data collection by the National Security Agency is effective. Technology can't replicate what bulk data collection can do for intelligence. But more effective methods could be developed so that the collection and use of data is more targeted and controlled. Those are among the findings from a major study of signal intelligence practices. The study was just completed by the National Academies. It was requested by the President and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence a year ago. Michael Leiter is an executive vice president at Leidos and a member of the committee that authored the report. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the findings.

NSA's mobility mission office puts itself out of business

The National Security Agency closed down an office dedicated to mobility, because devices and apps have become part of the fabric of everything the agency does. But NSA, like all agencies, still must figure out how to secure mobile devices using derived credentials.

This fall, five more schools will offer an intensive science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education track to students who are serious about federal cybersecurity careers.
