Produktbeschreibung
Today, identity is more than anything, economic. The technology used to create, utilize and protect identities is increasingly ill-matched to the economics and uses of identities. Identity theft is the misuse of private authenticating information to steal money. Protecting identity requires privacy. Proving identity requires exposing information. Together, these points illustrate that the near-term search for cheap identity management is a formula for long-term fraud resulting in ever-increasing identity theft. The Economics of Identity Theft: Avoidance, Causes and Possible Cures, a professional book, discusses privacy as multi-dimensional, and then pulls forward the economics of privacy in the first few chapters. This book also includes identity-based signatures, spyware, and the placement of biometric security in an economically broken system, which results in a broken biometric system. The final chapters include systematic problems with practical individual strategies for preventing identity theft for any reader of any economic status. In conclusion, four startling previews of the future are written as scenarios. TOC:Identity Theft.- Identity Online in Practice.- Secrecy, Privacy, Identity.- Economics of Privacy.- Economics of Security.- Identity Ownership Online.- Spyware, Zombies and 419.- Defeating the Great Masquerade.- Anonymous Credentials.- Identity-Based Signatures.- Biometrics: A Primer.- Reputation.- Four Views of the Future.- New Economics of Identity.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "This book is primarily concerned with the interplay between identity management technologies and their associated economic impact. ... Overall, this book provides an interesting oversight of the economics of privacy and an overview of a range of identity management technologies in an economic context. ... It is certainly worthy of perusal, provided that its significant US bias and inconsistency in what is actually meant by 'identity theft' are recognised from the outset." (Stefan Fafinski, Journal of Information, Communication & Ethics in Society, Vol. 7 (4), 2009)
