Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5661)


Security is a concern for persons, organizations, and nations. For the individual members of organizations and nations, personal privacy is also a concern. The technologies for monitoring electronic communication are at the same time tools to protect security and threats to personal privacy. Participants in this workshop address the interrelation of personal privacy and national or societal security, from social, technical and legal perspectives. The participants represented industry, the academy and the United States Government. The issues addressed have become, if anything, even more pressing today than they were when the conference was held.
