Book Description

6 Oct 1997
A collection of previously unreleased documents dealing with privacy in the Information Age.

Trying to keep up with the advancements in cryptography and digital telephony, the government has advocated controversial new tools that will allow them to monitor electronic communications. On the other side of the spectrum, privacy advocates are vehemently opposed to any government monitoring whatsoever. This book is a carefully selected and annotated collection of documents from both the government and the industry, enabling readers to fully understand governmental policies and how these will impact individuals and companies involved with the Internet.

More About the Author

Bruce Schneier is the go-to security expert for business leaders and policy makers. His breakthrough book Applied Cryptography (1994, 1998) explained how the arcane science of secret codes actually works, and was described by Wired as "the book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published." His business-oriented bestseller Secrets and Lies (2000) was called by Fortune "[a] jewel box of little surprises you can actually use." Best known as a refreshingly candid and lucid security critic and commentator, he has appeared in numerous media outlets, including The New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, and The Wall Street Journal, as well as on NPR, CNN, and the major networks. He has also testified on security before the United States Congress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent books for the goal in mind 28 Dec 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Probably the only book to date that is current (as current, of course, as it can be) with documents and notes letting the reader know where our goverments policies stand, and as such, letting the public know as well. There are no more assumptions to be made, the documents are laid out in the book for all to see and read. A nice change of pace from traditional analysis of algorithms, instead, the reader gets to see for him/herself just how the U.S. goverment is applying them and the legislation on it.
