Top 10 most inspiring quotes by Bruce Schneier
- Anyone, from the most clueless amateur to the best cryptographer, can create an algorithm that he himself can’t break.
- The more we expect technology to protect us from people in the same way it protects us from nature, the more we will sacrifice the very values of our society in futile attempts to achieve this security.
- The question to ask when you look at security is not whether this makes us safer, but whether it’s worth the trade-off.
- Surveillance of power is one of the most important ways to ensure that power does not abuse its status. But, of course, power does not like to be watched.
- There are two kinds of cryptography in this world: cryptography that will stop your kid sister from reading your files, and cryptography that will stop major governments from reading your files.
- It is insufficient to protect ourselves with laws; we need to protect ourselves with mathematics.
- If someone steals your password, you can change it. But if someone steals your thumbprint, you can’t get a new thumb. The failure modes are very different.
- People often represent the weakest link in the security chain and are chronically responsible for the failure of security systems.
- More people are killed every year by pigs than by sharks, which shows you how good we are at evaluating risk.
- It’s frustrating; terrorism is rare and largely ineffectual, yet we regularly magnify the effects of both their successes and failures by terrorizing ourselves.
