RSA denies link with US spying agency

Source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-25492461...

From BBC online

In a blogpost RSA "categorically" denied the allegation that this opened a backdoor into any product in which it was used.

The Reuters report said the NSA paid RSA $10m (£6.1m) to use a random number generator that has since been discovered to open a backdoor into any software in which it was used.

Documents released by whistleblower Edward Snowden have confirmed the existence of backdoors in some technologies RSA, and other firms, used in their products.

The random number generator, known as the "Dual Elliptic Curve Deterministic Random Bit Generator" (Dual EC DRBG), became a standard part of some RSA products in 2004.
