Are privacy concerns over end user surveillance by network operators such as AT&T
and Verizon, and by “edge providers” such as Google and Amazon, being
dangerously overshadowed by the predominant emphasis on government
surveillance? Quite possibly so, Professor Paterson concludes, after reviewing
currently-used packet analysis technologies and their advertised capabilities. Paterson
concludes that the problem faced by privacy and public interest advocates is that no
one has a truly comprehensive grasp of how widely network operators have deployed
such tools, what information is collected, or how it is put to use. Paterson asserts
that the potential risks call for additional vigorous research in this area.
