Microsoft's deputy security chief Matt Thomlinson told the Munich Security Conference on Friday it will open a "transparency centre" for EU governments in Brussels by end-2014. The centre will allow EU countries' officials to inspect Microsoft source code to verify it has not created "backdoors" to enable US snooping.
