I liked this basic overview of this job that is sure to increase in popularity in future years, but I would have liked to have had more information on how some cases are cracked as well as exploration of cyberbullying and sexual predation over the Internet. Those are crimes too, and as such they need to be addressed. Some of the stock photos look a little bit dated due to clothing and hairstyles.
I laughed, though, at the appropriateness of the first image which depicted a group of young women standing on a boardwalk or near a carnival, and every one of them is texting madly.

They want to know what you're doing so they can tax you, or catch you doing something illegal.
This is why cryptography is so important, such a hot political potato, and why cryptography software is such a security issue. In America under the export rules, cryptography software is classified as a weapon. He incurred the legal wrath of the US. Government because he allowed the software to be exported out of the United States. Administration's attempts to ban public use of 'unbreakable codes'.
Graham Greenleaf: Public key cryptography is probably one of the most significant developments in the history of communications. About a decade or so ago, it was discovered that you could use one number or key to encrypt a message, and then a quite separate number to de-crypt the message. So that means you can have one of those keys known to all the world, your public key, whereas you keep the other key to yourself - the private key. And that means, by virtue of you knowing other people's public keys and other people knowing your public key, you can send messages back and forth to each other with complete privacy, and you can also do things like authenticate your signature on electronic documents - the notion of the digital signature.
So it has quite a wide range of uses, and it's also now possible to have strong encryption freely available via the Internet and elsewhere, and built into any sort of software we might want to use. And Phil Zimmerman, who came up with the Pretty Good Privacy, or PGP software a couple of years ago and virtually put it into the public domain, effectively gave strong encryption which in practice is uncrackable even by military and security agencies.
He effectively gave that to the public. My practice is mainly focused on electronic commerce, encryption, export controls and related topics. The N. It's accused of stifling those who advocate privacy, and those who want strong cryptography to protect their commercial transactions on the Internet.
Baker says it's not the N. But he himself still leans towards the crypto-authoritarian view of the world of cyberspace. Stewart Baker: The difficulty with this debate is that both sides have some terrible roles that they can describe, and the world of information warfare, which is quite a plausible world, is one in which rather poor nations with good programmers, such as India or China, can essentially do the equivalent of strategic bombing as we know it from World War II, to more advanced societies that have put most of their infrastructures into computer networks.
It would be possible, with sophisticated programming, to prevent long-distance calls, to make sure that automatic teller machines don't function, to cripple rail and air transportation, all by attacking the computer. That's a reason to have very strong encryption, to make that harder. The people who worry about strong encryption, worry about it being used for massive co-ordinated acts of terrorism and the like.
Digital money can also be used for digital ransoms, anonymous payments to hit men and the like. So there are really unpleasant side effects of all this technology, which by and large is very good, that people can raise as a think about the parts of the future that we won't like as a result of this new technology.
China’s Cyber Cop Ups the Pressure to Control Online Speech
Stan Correy: What did you mean by - I saw in an article - talking about encryption safe havens, is that related to what we've just been talking about? Stewart Baker: One of the difficulties that nations that want to control encryption face, is that if they don't control encryption in most parts of the world, then there will always be somebody in an encryption safe haven who is free to write the best possible encryption and to put it on the Internet and offer it for free, or for a modest price and sell it to people who are not supposed to have.
This is the problem the French face: in theory they control all the encryption that is sold inside of France, but it's so easy to download encryption from the Internet that they really have no idea how much unbreakable encryption has already been deployed throughout France. Stan Correy: Stewart Baker. And information warfare was the hot topic at a Defence Forces conference in Darwin last week.
Tim May, crypto anarchist, thinks Stewart Baker is a persuasive advocate of hard-line cryptography, but they come from different worlds and the fight has just begun.
Cyber Cop Hat
Tim May: The larger issue which your listeners have to realise is that technology is always involved in a race against criminal use and law enforcement use. Now if Stewart Baker and his pals get there first, and ban cryptography, strong cryptography, essentially you can say that all cryptography as to be escrowed - this is like the government having the ability to make a letter transparent or your window blinds transparent, that sort of thing.
We still think that he won't exactly win, because there are too many avenues for forwarding such systems. Now if we get to that point first, then essentially government find their ability to control financial transactions vanishes. They'll just be working their factory job, with a job at the surf shop or whatever job they work, and they'll get their pay cheque from their employers and clearly there are very few avenues for hiding assets.
Government doesn't control. What this does, what this technology does, is dramatically increase the possibilities for this. For stuff floating around, not even the originators of the data may know what physical location the data is in at any point. This is truly amazing. Bill Gates: There is a huge political issue here in security, which is that the US. Government makes it impossible for software companies here to export decent security technology, and that's because the spy agencies want to still be able to tap into mail that's sent around the world by different people.
And unfortunately for them, this technology is fairly pervasive, and so there's this debate on should they let software companies like Microsoft and others, actually have decent security. Another scheme they have is for all the security you give the keys to the government, and so if the government wants to look at what you're doing, they can do that. Voice: The Federal Trade Commission has shut down what it is calling the largest illegal pyramid operation in the history of the Internet.
Fear of fraud and a stampede to do business on the Internet are behind the law enforcement push to regulate encryption.

David Bennahum is a frequent contributor on Internet issues to magazines like 'Wired' and 'The Economist'. David Bennahum: People spend trillions of US. If we could just get a small percentage of that on-line, and then be responsible somehow for creating the standard for how the money would be transferred so that we could get a little royalty of something off the transaction, we'd stand to make essentially a huge huge amount of money. I mean, such a huge amount of money that it does become a kind of wild frontier where suddenly you have a number of companies would love to actually establish the world-wide standard for how money is encrypted and scrambled and sent over computer networks.
And so what we have is a kind of situation where there are these competing commercial entities that are saying, 'Look, here's my way of doing this', and then another one might say, 'Well here's my way of doing this', and there's no-one really in control or no-one in authority saying 'Well this way's better than that way,' or 'This is how we're going to do it. And so for the moment it's completely up in the air, and the problem with that is something like money is so fundamental to life that some people feel - government or I guess association of governments internationally, should at this point have something to say about how to move forward.
Stan Correy: Bennahum believes that the US. Government and law enforcement is feeding off the 'darkside of digital cash', by which he means the kind of view put forward by crypto anarchists like Tim May, who think that all financial transactions on the Internet must be confidential. David Bennahum: The most profound impact in a way of the Internet and computer networks will be the arrival of electronic money for everyday people. And when that happens, it is very difficult to trace people's income, it's very difficult to trace how people spend their income, and once you can't really do that, it's very hard to make sure what people owe in taxes and if they're evading their taxes.
If you multiply that over an entire population and assume that most people would like to pay less taxes, it's extremely worrying for many many governments to think that we're now going to give pretty much anyone the ability to do things which really only corporations have been able to do.
I mean traditionally corporations have evaded taxes by moving operations offshore, by doing all kinds of things that everyday people can't do, and this kind of digital cash gives everyday people the same level of power in a way, that companies have had to evade taxes, and frankly, governments are extremely concerned that there's nothing they can do about it, and they're trying to figure out a way to stop this from happening.
Stan Correy: So what's the choice? Economic chaos or personal privacy? There are ways to satisfy the cybercops, the cyber anarchists, and big business, says Graham Greenleaf. He's editor of 'Privacy Law Reporter'. Graham Greenleaf: Virtual money, or electronic cash is OK. Stan Correy: So in some senses, you think they might be overplaying the anonymous transaction line, which is very strong at the moment.
Graham Greenleaf: Yes I think they are overplaying it, and partly it's because at this stage, no-one is sure of how these things will work out, and how the technologies will pan out. And the dilemma is whether to ban something that has demonstrable great value in protecting privacy and protecting the security of commercial transactions because of basically unproven fears.

It's a key player in any policy on how money is moved and transactions recorded. Elizabeth Montano: Certainly it's a really big challenge for law enforcement and particularly in relation to money laundering, which is our particular area of interest, as well as tax evasion. There are lots of angles on this, and there are lots of perspectives why one wants to be very careful to see what's going on, and to see what the appropriate level of government intervention is. I mean you've got to think - the people who want to use the system to launder money, they're not the ones who are going to be breaking down the systems, hacking in and doing things, they want to disappear into the anonymous flow of activity on the internet.
So they won't be the ones who'll be causing systemic problems because it's in their interests for it to all work. The other angle from a wider law enforcement prospective is of course those who do want to disrupt the systems for their own benefit - the hackers, the ones who want to commit fraud, people do have an interest in manipulating the systems. Our heroine's records have been erased by a mysterious software company in a raid on private and public networks.
The company enters the net by selling Gatekeeper, a false encryption software. Tim May believes the only protection for individuals from this sort of crime is black pipes, strong cryptography that forms an impenetrable shield around information. The black pipes are made of complex mathematics. And they monitor financial transactions; they tap into computers and they essentially look for flows of money because they're getting quite worried about the fact that strong crypto makes essentially black pipes, pipes that are completely opaque to any external tapping, that's a good analogy for what cryptography provides.
You and I could set up an encrypted black pipe between ourselves.
All the computer power in the world could not possibly break what goes through that pipe. The possibilities are quite amazing.
