QOTD - Garfinkel: Privacy Requires Security, Not Abstinence

When someone can wreak havoc by misappropriating your personal data, privacy is threatened far more by the lack of a reliable online identification system than it would be by the introduction of one. And it is likely that it would cost society far more money to live with poor security than to address it. -- Simson Garfinkel, associate professor at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA
