March 7, 2007 lecture by Phillip Zimmermann for the Stanford University Computer Systems Colloquium (EE 380). Phil talks about how the debate on the use of crypto has shifted since the 1990s, when it was a clash between civil liberties and law enforcement - in the 1990s, the crypto debate was about averting omniscience in governments, but today the encrypted VoIP debate may be about averting omniscience in criminals.
In this course, Stanford University gives 27 video lectures on the Computer Systems Laboratory Colloquium. This course features weekly speakers on current research and developments in computer systems. Topics touch upon all aspects of computer science and engineering including logic design, computer organization and architecture, software engineering, computer applications, public policy, and the social, business, and financial implications of technology. Frequently the Colloquium provides the first public forum for discussion of new products, discoveries, or ideas. This playlist consists of seminar speakers recorded during the 2006-2007 academic year.
