Publisher Comments:

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.

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.
