Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8809)


So I’m going to talk about the key role intelligence agencies can play to restore our democratic institutions. So this talk has a very interesting history. I was invited to a conference, a workshop actually organized by philosophers called the Online Security & Civil Rights: a Fine Ethical Balance in 2012, October 26th to the 27th, here in the UK. It was a workshop on invitation only, and so this means the talk was pre Snowden. Unfortunately the philosophers did not like the talk, and so the talk wasn’t actually one of the invited ones for publication. And I would like to thank basically Bruce for encouraging me to submit the position paper here.
