Book Description Times Group Books, New Delhi, India. Softcover. Condition: New. First Edition. Cypherpunks is a term used to denote activists who support the use of strong forms of cryptography to protect individuals from cyber attacks conducted by international spying agencies. The cypherpunks movement has been active since the 1990s and Julian Assange has been an important face in the movement.Cypherpunks: Freedom And The Future Of The Internet is an attempt to strengthen the voice of this movement. The book discusses how online users can reduce their vulnerability to cyber attacks. It focusses on the relation between the society and Internet security. The book clearly explains how control on the Internet by the government and corporates is a threat to our freedom and fundamental rights. It is a wake up call against the probability of a dystopian future. The authors express concern over the fact that the state has begun using hacking as a tool for policing and that the world is slowly heading towards a totalitarian state. They suggest using strong cryptography to protect one’s personal data against surveillance from the state.Cypherpunks: Freedom And The Future Of The Internet, as Julian Assange describes, is not a manifesto. The book has been written as a warning to the users of the Internet. Since encryption is easy, but decryption requires a huge commitment of funds and time, it is the only viable and the most feasible option available to the users of the Internet to prevent themselves against the onslaught by the government.Printed Pages: 194.
