    Re: Channel State Information used to detect Wi-Fi device tampering

    Can it distinguish between normal people and employes of GCHQ?

    If it can't it seems a bit pointless as if the IPB gets passed into law it would be a crime to reveal the existence of government hacking.

    I think the civil servants employed at GCHQ might be upset to be thought that they are not normal people.

    I'm not saying their bug eyed monsters, but in strictly legal terms when it comes to hacking they ain't.

    EDIT: Just so there's no disambiguate "employes of GCHQ" means when carrying out their work for GCHQ.

    Doesn't a camera work just as well?

    Could even have it triggered by PIR, job done?

    It's just work, just as a forensic investigator 'hacks' a seized computer as part of a criminal investigation.

    Yes it's just work but it probably would have seemed odd if i said normal people and GCHQ, that's unless GCHQ has grown legs and can walk up to WiFi hotspots.

    What GCHQ, as an organisation, do is nothing like a forensic investigator 'hacking' a seized computer as part of a criminal investigation, in the case of the forensic investigator there's reasonable grounds to suspect that single computer may contain information relevant to the investigation, what GCHQ is gather information on both the innocent and guilty in a scattergun approach solely designed for the purpose of ‘fishing’ for information without any idea of what might be revealed.
