So far, there is one story where Eva claims the NSA can break tor
easily, see this Tor and HTTPS graphic as proof:
If your adversary is any rumored global passive adversary that can watch
and record the entire Internet at once, then you've probably already
lost the game.
At PETS in 2009, Paul did a talk on 'why I'm not an entropist' and
suggested that people need to start working on defeating a mythical
global passive adversary. Maybe in the near future some government will
have the capability of being the global passive adversary.
