Overview

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.

This is a compilation of previously classified or leaked government papers, industry documents and statements obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. The emphasis of the publication is on individual and corporate privacy issues versus the needs and requirements of government surveillance within the context of public policy and delivery of electronic (online) information. It looks at regulatory and technical issues, rationale, legal foundations and limits. The book reviews wiretapping policies and public attitudes. It examines the surveillance lobby, the government's digital telephony proposal, and public response. Other papers present the evolution and ongoing battle over cryptographic control of data communication, the government's clipper proposal, and public response to desktop surveillance. Additional articles investigate cryptographic export controls, software key escrow, and analyze encryption provisions. The publication includes excerpts from the House Judiciary Committee report on digital telephony and text of the bill.

Library Journal
This is not an academically neutral book on the subject of privacy. Both Schneier and Banisar are security and privacy advocates of long standing, and they like to refer to the information superhighway as the information "snooperhighway." Here, they have collected previously classified documents from both government and industry sources. Coverage includes digital wiretapping, E-mail security, cryptography, the National Security Administration's perspective on telecommunications, the clipper chip, softkey escrow, and much more. Recommended for all libraries.
Booknews
A collection of previously classified government and industry documents, including excerpts from the House Judiciary Committee report on the digital telephony bill, the FBI's wish list for electronic surveillance, and White House cryptography policy statements. Material is in sections on privacy and the Information Superhighway, wiretapping, the digital telephony proposal, cryptography, the clipper chip, export controls on cryptography, and banning cryptography. Introductory and overview chapters discuss the economic and political rationale for digital wire tapping, the legal foundations of government surveillance, and policies government may pursue in the future.
