Utah Data Center is built for the National Security Agency (NSA), a project of enormous secrecy. The purpose includes to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store the world’s communications using satellites and cables vacuuming data traffic in international, foreign, and domestic networks.
“The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013. Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.””
