Re: Quid pro what?
It is likely that they licensed software from RSA.  And they probably asked RSA to make the Dual Elliptical RNG the default to save time configuring their systems and convincing RSA that it was because it was a good RNG.  NSA was well known before then as being a leader in security and encryption.  For example, they released SELiunx in 2000.  So, I ask perhaps a retorical question: What happened since 2000 that caused NSA to turn hostille against the world wanting security and privacy?  Being that it is under the charge of the executive branch, do you suppose Bush/Cheney had anything to do with the sudden undermining of security/privacy?

Quid pro what?
So what did the NSA get for the US$10 million they gave to RSA?   Some spiffy t-shirts?

What Schneier says... is good enough for me
Bruce Schneier describes RSA Bsafe default encryption as "a weakness that can only be described as a backdoor." Ah, that's good enough for me. The NSA doesn't have business partners --what does it contribute to anyone 's else's business? It has business collaborators. Security software "partners" should beware of what cooperation will do to their reputation.
