NSA and CrytoKids (are they really there?)

Wednesday, November 09, 2005

I found this pretty cool and funny link today and decided that it would be a fun 3 minute check to see if the great NSA, www.nsa.gov (which resides 30 minutes from where I live in MD) was indeed located in Maryland and the site was not spoofed. So here I do a quick DNS lookup.

The screen below is a a quick tracert from the DNS I obtained in the former picture. Because the requests kept timing out, I took the last viable IP and ran it through a locator to see where the last ping went.

Aha! Too close for comfort. I guess www.nsa.gov/kids/ is legit! Now that the folks at NSA are watching my every keystroke, I had better publish this before my laptop mysteriously dies.
