Cyber fellow Jonathan Mayer pieces together NSA reach

CISAC cybersecurity fellow Jonathan Mayer is featured in this Huffington Post story for his reverse engineering of the NSA surveillance program. Mayer's research has shown that the agency's call-tracking program might be even bigger than previously thought.

Mayer, who just graduated from the Stanford Law School, is also working on his Ph.D. in computer science. His research on the NSA’s capabilities is so singular it was cited in the White House NSA review panel report.
