This is a report on a panel that was held on March 2 nd , 2012, as part of the Third Workshop on Ethics in Computer Security Research (WECSR 2012). The purpose of the panel was to discuss issues pertaining to ethical and secure data sharing across borders. In particular, (1) Are there ethically-driven data-sharing differences between laws of different nations, (2) Are there ethically different norms between nations? (3) How can one satisfy all norms/codes/acts among nations? (4) Can above be enforceable? automatically so? (5) Are there ever circumstances that justify “breaking the glass”? and (6) Assuming data sanitization is involved, how can we (technically) guarantee such?
