DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"Joan Feigenbaum reviews the highlights of computer science's contribution to security and privacy research and show why they are crucial building blocks of the emerging information economy. The second half of the talk focuses on social customs that must complement effective technical mechanisms if information commerce is to thrive. Feigenbaum endorses a few (controversial) principles that she believes should guide the evolution of those social customs and demonstrate that computer science researches have a crucial role to play in this process. A central goal is the development of a notion of trust that is suitable for the electronic world and possesses the flexibility, scalability, and universal legitimacy that the notion of trust has in the traditional commercial world."
