Snowden has been identified as a former technical assistant for the CIA and was, until today, an employee of Booz Allen. He revealed his own identity on his own volition, to establish the veracity of the documentation he has released to the media.

Snowden's exact whereabouts are unknown, but he was last confirmed in Hong Kong and there is no evidence he has left that region.
