MIT creates tool reveals what metadata you say Gmail
In recent times there has been talk much of “metadata” , which is Information about a file, and that is mainly what the program collects Prism of the NSA. Are they harmless metadata? What they can reveal about us?
The MIT Media Lab created a tool called Immersion , who does not read your post, but with the associated data (who sent the email, who sent it – including those who are copied -, and shipping time) can do great deductions.
From this information, immersion makes logical connections between the people you’ve contacted. The result is quite impressive, but depend on the time and number of emails in your email account. The experiment makes clear the level of information that can reveal the metadata are collected en masse.
The application can be tested, but you have to give access to MIT to your Google Account so you can collect the data (you can revoke access later in the settings of your Gmail account).immersion, Información, Information, metadata, metadatos, MIT, NSA, Prism
