Susan Landau is the author of Surveillance or Security?: The Risks Posed by New Wiretapping Technologies, a careful, clear, and informed book about how government mechanisms for surveillance (legal and otherwise) weaken cybersecurity. (Surveillance or Security is apparently out soon in paperback.) Susan (and co-authors) have two new short essays on similar themes. One is Going Bright: Wiretapping without Weakening Communications Infrastructure (with Steve Bellovin, Matt Blaze, and Sandy Clark). The other (with Matt Blaze) is The FBI Needs Hackers, Not Backdoors.
