Is Privacy Really Constraining Security or Is this a Red Herring?
July-August 2004 (vol. 2 no. 4)
pp. 86-87
Michael A. Caloyannides, Mitretek Systems
On the surface, the argument at the heart of the "security vs. privacy" debate is seductively simple: "To prevent terrorism (or spam, or cybercrime, or male-pattern baldness, or whatever one dreads), we must empower police to monitor all online activities." However, this claim suffers two fatal logical flaws: it presumes that the proposed fix will solve the problem, and it ignores the proposal's potential for creating even more serious problems than the one it professes to fix.
Index Terms:
security, privacy, terrorism, spam
