Bruce Schneier on security vs. privacy

Posted February 16th, 2008 by konrad

Here is just a quick link to an article about privacy and security by Bruce Schneier at Wired. He explains the wrong perception regarding the trade-off between these two values.

The debate isn’t security versus privacy. It’s liberty versus control. […] If you set up the false dichotomy, of course people will choose security over privacy – especially if you scare them first. But it’s still a false dichotomy. There is no security without privacy. And liberty requires both security and privacy.
