Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly about Security in an Uncertain World Hardcover - 2003

by Bruce Schneier

Opposing national ID cards but saying the online shopping is fundamentally safe, the author of "Applied Cryptography" invites readers to take a critical look at matters of security in a post 9/11 world.


From the publisher

Schneier, the highly regarded author of APPLIED CRYPTOGRAPHY and SECRETS AND LIES, turns his iconoclastic mind on the broader issues of security, including the vast infrastructure we already have in place, and the vaster systems--some useful, others useless or worse--that we're being asked to submit to and pay for.

First line

In the wake of 9/11, many of us want to reinvent our ideas about security.
