  • Bruce Schneier on Security

    Posted by Jonathan on October 25th, 2003 (All posts by )

    Lex pointed me to this thoughtful review of Schneier’s new book. I also noticed this recent column, which summarizes much of what I have learned by reading Schneier’s online newsletter. In a media world which sometimes seems to alternate between complacent ignorance and various hysterical warnings, Schneier’s contrary attitude, and his rational view of security as a series of cost/benefit tradeoffs, make him always worth reading.

      Excellent links. I haven’t read Schneier before, but I have a feeling I’m going to spend the next week crawling through his newsletter archives… Thanks…

      An excellent newsletter indeed.

      I have read Schneier for a while. I have heard very good things about his latest book and meant to order it. Thanks for the timely reminder.

      I don’t recommend his previous book, Secrets and Lies, unless you want to buy someone an easy-to-read primer.
