Bruce Schneier, arguably the world’s foremost authority on computer security, has explored security issues ranging from protecting your password to illegal wiretapping. This collection of Schneier’s best op-ed pieces, columns, and blog posts goes beyond technology, offering his insight into everything from the risk of identity theft (vastly overrated) to the long-range security threat of unchecked presidential power and the surprisingly simple way to tamper-proof elections.
