Product Description

From the Back Cover

Edited by internationally recognized security expert Bruce Schneier and privacy advocate David Banisar, this is the definitive collection of critical and previously classified government and industry documents. It enables you to fully understand government policies and their impact on both individuals and companies involved with the Internet. The Electronic Privacy Papers offers readers a close look at regulatory and technical issues, including:
∗ The economic and political rationale for demanding digital wire tapping and surveillance
∗ The legal foundations of, and limitations to, government surveillance·
∗ Government strategies for soliciting cooperation from telephone companies and equipment manufacturers
∗ Which policies that industries and individuals can expect the government to pursue in the future

The Electronic Privacy Papers includes excerpts from the House Judiciary Committee report on the digital telephony bill, the final text of the bill, the FBI′s wish list for electronic surveillance, U.S. cryptography policy statements from the White House, and many other government documents. The Electronic Privacy Papers is must reading for anyone involved with public policy and the delivery of online information.

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.
