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
