Bruce Schneier - Liars ​and Outliers
In ​today's hyper-connected society, understanding the mechanisms of trust is crucial. Issues of trust are critical to solving problems as diverse as corporate responsibility, global warming, and the political system. In this insightful and entertaining book, Schneier weaves together ideas from across the social and biological sciences to explain how society induces trust. He shows the unique role of trust in facilitating and stabilizing human society. He discusses why and how trust has evolved, why it works the way it does, and the ways the information society is changing everything.

Bruce Schneier - Beyond ​Fear
Many ​of us, especially since 9/11, have become personally concerned about issues of security, and this is no surprise. Security is near the top of government and corporate agendas around the globe. Security-related stories appear on the front page everyday. How well though, do any of us truly understand what achieving real security involves? In Beyond Fear, Bruce Schneier invites us to take a critical look at not just the threats to our security, but the ways in which we're encouraged to think about security by law enforcement agencies, businesses of all shapes and sizes, and our national governments and militaries. Schneier believes we all can and should be better security consumers, and that the trade-offs we make in the name of security - in terms of cash outlays, taxes, inconvenience, and diminished freedoms - should be part of an ongoing negotiation in our personal, professional, and civic lives, and the subject of an open and informed national discussion. With a well-deserved reputation for original and sometimes iconoclastic thought, Schneier has a lot to say that is provocative, counter-intuitive, and just plain good sense. He explains in detail, for example, why we need to design security systems that don't just work well, but fail well, and why secrecy on the part of government often undermines security. He also believes, for instance, that national ID cards are an exceptionally bad idea: technically unsound, and even destructive of security. And, contrary to a lot of current nay-sayers, he thinks online shopping is fundamentally safe, and that many of the new airline security measure (though by no means all) are actually quite effective. A skeptic of much that's promised by highly touted technologies like biometrics, Schneier is also a refreshingly positive, problem-solving force in the often self-dramatizing and fear-mongering world of security pundits. Schneier helps the reader to understand the issues at stake, and how to best come to one's own conclusions, including the vast infrastructure we already have in place, and the vaster systems--some useful, others useless or worse--that we're being asked to submit to and pay for.

Bruce Schneier - Data ​and Goliath
You ​are under surveillance right now. Your cell phone provider tracks your location and knows who’s with you. Your online and in-store purchasing patterns are recorded, and reveal if you’re unemployed, sick, or pregnant. Your e-mails and texts expose your intimate and casual friends. Google knows what you’re thinking because it saves your private searches. Facebook can determine your sexual orientation without you ever mentioning it. The powers that surveil us do more than simply store this information. Corporations use surveillance to manipulate not only the news articles and advertisements we each see, but also the prices we’re offered. Governments use surveillance to discriminate, censor, chill free speech, and put people in danger worldwide. And both sides share this information with each other or, even worse, lose it to cybercriminals in huge data breaches. Much of this is voluntary: we cooperate with corporate surveillance because it promises us convenience, and we submit to government surveillance because it promises us protection. The result is a mass surveillance society of our own making. But have we given up more than we’ve gained? In Data and Goliath, security expert Bruce Schneier offers another path, one that values both security and privacy. He shows us exactly what we can do to reform our government surveillance programs and shake up surveillance-based business models, while also providing tips for you to protect your privacy every day. You’ll never look at your phone, your computer, your credit cards, or even your car in the same way again.

Bruce Schneier - Applied ​Cryptography
This ​new edition of the cryptography classic provides you with a comprehensive survey of modern cryptography. The book details how programmers and electronic communications professionals can use cryptography–the technique of enciphering and deciphering messages–to maintain the privacy of computer data. It describes dozens of cryptography algorithms, gives practical advice on how to implement them into cryptographic software, and shows how they can be used to solve security problems. Covering the latest developments in practical cryptographic techniques, this new edition shows programmers who design computer applications, networks, and storage systems how they can build security into their software and systems.

Bruce Schneier - Schneier ​a biztonságról
— ​Mobiltelefon, bankkártya, ügyfélkapus ügyintézések, adatainkat, adóügyeinket nyilvántartó adatbázisok - hétköznapjaink szerves részévé vált az informatika, az internet. Az élet egyre kényelmesebb, de egyre veszélyesebb is, s a biztonság alapkérdéssé válik, akár akarjuk, akár nem. Sokszor gondolkodás nélkül feláldozzuk magánszféránkat és kényelmünket, néha még méltóságunkat is, csak azért, hogy nagyobb biztonságban érezzük magunkat. De vajon elérjük-e ezzel célunkat, vagy csupán egy illúzióval leszünk gazdagabbak? Bruce Schneier szerint a legfőbb biztonsági kockázatot az emberek jelentik. A világszerte elismert biztonsági szakértő valós történeteken keresztül rombolja le a biztonságról alkotott illúzióinkat, és leplezi le, milyen is valójában ez a behálózott világ - legyen szó akár terroristákról, hírszerzési praktikákról, kedvelt közösségi oldalainkról vagy rendezvények körültekintő biztonsági intézkedéseiről. A kellő cinizmussal tálalt sztorikból kiderül, milyen lehetőségeket és veszélyeket rejt magában a biztonság iránti olthatatlan vágyunk, mi miatt kell tényleg aggódnunk, és miként szabadulhatunk meg félelmeinktől.

Bruce Schneier - Click ​Here to Kill Everybody
From ​driverless cars to smart thermostats, the Internet now has direct effects on the physical world. Although this computerized future, often called the Internet of Things, carries enormous potential, best- selling author Bruce Schneier argues that catastrophe awaits in its new vulnerabilities and dangers. Forget data theft; cutting- edge digital attackers can now literally crash your car, pacemaker, and home security system, as well as everyone else’s. In Click Here to Kill Everybody, Schneier “sets out detailed solutions that should be required reading for politicians across the world” (Financial Times). From principles for a more resilient Internet of Things to a recipe for sane government oversight, Schneier’s vision is required reading for anyone invested in human flourishing. “Sober, lucid and often wise in diagnosing how the security challenges posed by the expanding Internet came about, and in proposing what should (but probably won’t) be done about them.”
