Nothing to Hide: The False Tradeoff between Privacy and Security

Buy

"If you've got nothing to hide," many people say, "you shouldn't worry about government surveillance." Others argue that we must sacrifice privacy for security. But as Daniel J. Solove argues in this important book, these arguments and many others are flawed. They are based on mistaken views about what it means to protect privacy and the costs and benefits of doing so. The debate between privacy and security has been framed incorrectly as a zero-sum game in which we are forced to choose between one value and the other. Why can't we have both? 

In this concise and accessible book, Solove exposes the fallacies of many pro-security arguments that have skewed law and policy to favor security at the expense of privacy. Protecting privacy isn't fatal to security measures; it merely involves adequate oversight and regulation. Solove traces the history of the privacy-security debate from the Revolution to the present day. He explains how the law protects privacy and examines concerns with new technologies. He then points out the failings of our current system and offers specific remedies. Nothing to Hide makes a powerful and compelling case for reaching a better balance between privacy and security and reveals why doing so is essential to protect our freedom and democracy.

Data-driven Block Ciphers for Fast Telecommunication Systems
The Most Progressive and Complete Guide to DDO-Based Ciphers

Developers have long recognized that ciphers based on Permutation Networks (PNs) and Controlled Substitution-Permutation Networks (CSPNs) allow for the implementation of a variety of Data Driven Operations (DDOs). These DDOs can provide fast encryption without incurring excessive...

A Practical Guide to Information Systems Process Improvement
A Practical Guide to Information Systems Process Improvement
When you invest in expensive technology and systems, you want to get the most out of them. Process improvement has been used for years as an effective strategy to reduce costs, shorten cycle times, improve quality, and increase user satisfaction in other areas of business such as Quality, Manufacturing, and Engineering. While there are many books...
Cost Optimization of Structures: Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, and Parallel Computing
Cost Optimization of Structures: Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, and Parallel Computing
While the weight of a structure constitutes a significant part of the cost, a minimum weight design is not necessarily the minimum cost design. Little attention in structural optimization has been paid to the cost optimization problem, particularly of realistic three-dimensional structures. Cost optimization is becoming a priority in all civil...
