Subject: The CERT advisory regarding Internet security

Greetings.  As many or most of you probably know by now, there was within
the last few days a rather detailed advisory from CERT regarding attacks on
Internet systems via persons exploiting any available access to promiscuous
ethernet interface device nodes.

I am not going to repeat the bulletin here, since it is quite lengthy
and available from many other sources.  Many system administrators 
have long been aware of the vulnerability of such nodes, and have
long since taken steps to remove or protect them.  Of course,
the security of systems is only as good as the weakest elements,
and a system where outsiders can achieve privileged access, and so
make use of promiscuous interfaces to monitor plaintext traffic between
other nodes in the domain, is obviously going to have problems.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist (computer scientist?  brain surgeon?)
to anticipate this kind of problem...

Subject: Crypto Experts Oppose Clipper

     More than three dozen of the nation's leading cryptographers,
computer security specialists and privacy experts today urged
President Clinton to abandon the controversial Clipper encryption
proposal.  The letter was coordinated by Computer Professionals
for Social Responsibility (CPSR), which has long sought to open
the issue of cryptography policy to public debate

     The group cited the secrecy surrounding the proposal,
widespread public opposition to the plan and privacy concerns as
reasons why the initiative should not go forward.

     The letter comes at a crucial point in the debate on
cryptography policy.  An internal Administration review of the
issue is nearing completion and the National Security Agency (NSA)
is moving forward with efforts to deploy Clipper technology in
civilian agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service.

     CPSR has sponsored several public conferences on
cryptography and privacy and has litigated Freedom of Informa-
tion Act cases seeking the disclosure of relevant government
documents.  In one pending FOIA case, CPSR is challenging the
secrecy of the Skipjack algorithm which underlies the Clipper
proposal.

January 24, 1994

The President
The White House
Washington, DC  20500

Dear Mr. President,

     We are writing to you regarding the "Clipper" escrowed 
encryption proposal now under consideration by the White House.  
We wish to express our concern about this plan and similar 
technical standards that may be proposed for the nation's 
communications infrastructure.  

     The current proposal was developed in secret by federal 
agencies primarily concerned about electronic surveillance, not 
privacy protection.  Critical aspects of the plan remain 
classified and thus beyond public review.  

     The private sector and the public have expressed nearly 
unanimous opposition to Clipper.  In the formal request for 
comments conducted by the Department of Commerce last year, less 
than a handful of respondents supported the plan.  Several hundred 
opposed it.
 
     If the plan goes forward, commercial firms that hope to 
develop new products will face extensive government obstacles.  
Cryptographers who wish to develop new privacy enhancing 
technologies will be discouraged.  Citizens who anticipate that 
the progress of technology will enhance personal privacy will  
find their expectations unfulfilled.

     Some have proposed that Clipper be adopted on a voluntary 
basis and suggest that other technical approaches will remain 
viable.  The government, however, exerts enormous influence in the 
marketplace, and the likelihood that competing standards would 
survive is small.  Few in the user community believe that the 
proposal would be truly voluntary.

     The Clipper proposal should not be adopted.  We believe that 
if this proposal and the associated standards go forward, even on 
a voluntary basis, privacy protection will be diminished, 
innovation will be slowed, government accountability will be 
lessened, and the openness necessary to ensure the successful 
development of the nation's communications infrastructure will be 
threatened.

     We respectfully ask the White House to withdraw the Clipper 
proposal.

Sincerely,

                                EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

During the past five years, encryption technology has become easily available
to both individuals and businesses, affording them a level of security
formerly available practically to only military, national security, and law
enforcement agencies. As a result, a debate within the United States about
the proper balance between national security and personal freedom has been
initiated. Law enforcement and national security agencies would like to
maintain tight control over civilian encryption technologies, while industry
and individual and privacy rights advocates fight to expand their ability to
distribute and use cryptographic products as they please.

This report analyzes trends in encryption technology, markets, export
controls, and legislation.  It identifies five trends which will have a
strong influence on cryptography policy in the United States:

     * The continued expansion of the Internet and the progressive
     miniaturization of cryptographic hardware combined with the  increasing
     availability and use of strong cryptographic software means that the
     strongest encryption technologies will  continue to become more easily
     obtainable everywhere in the years ahead.

     * Additional growth in networked and wireless communication will fuel a
     strong demand for encryption hardware and software both domestically and
     abroad, causing the U. S. high-technology industry to be increasingly
     interested in selling encryption products overseas and in modifying
     current export restrictions.

     * Due to the responsibilities and bureaucratic dispositions of key
     Executive Branch agencies, products using strong encryption algorithms
     such as DES will continue to face at least some export  restrictions,
     despite the widespread availability of strong encryption products
     overseas.

     * The American public is likely to become increasingly concerned about
     its privacy and about cryptographic policy as a result of the increased
     amount of personal information available online and the growing number
     of wireless and networked communications.  The development and
     increasingly widespread use of the National Information Infrastructure
     will heighten these concerns.

     * Encryption policy is becoming an important public policy issue that
     will engage the attention of all branches of government.  Congress will
     become increasingly visible in this debate due to its power of agency
     oversight and its role in passing laws accommodating the United States'
     rapid rate of technological change.  Agencies will remain very important
     since they have the implementing and, often, the planning
     responsibilities.  Since individuals and industry have more direct
     influence over Congress than over most other branches of government,
     Congress may place somewhat more emphasis on personal freedom than many
     other government actors.

Four potential scenarios are likely: mandatory escrowed encryption, voluntary
escrowed encryption, complete decontrol of encryption, or domestic decontrol
with strict export regulations.

Subject: Personal Information Via the Internet

I plan to submit this to RISKS, as well, but the issues cross both the
risk and the privacy lines, so I thought readers of this digest would be
interested in this too.  I'm not trying to pick on Michael Bridgeman; I
think that his company is merely the starting point in a discussion about
the risks and effects that becoming part of the information highway
raises for the Internet.  Michael cancelled his original article
before I could go back and retrieve a copy to include it in its
entirety here (the RISKS of posting to the Internet, eh? :-).  So what
follows is about 3/4 of his original posting; only the contact info
has been removed:

I am now aware that PGP stands for a very good encryption mechanism, but
I still feel that there are risks in using the Internet for delivery
of such personal information.   Although PGP is "available", nowhere
in the post does it say that he is going to use it all the time.

I've been on the Internet for a long time (since '81) and I certainly will
be the first to say that I don't follow every little nuance and new
development, so it'll probably come as no surprise that *I* hadn't heard
of PGP before.  How many Internet newbie landlords are going to recognize
that PGP means "worlds greatest encryption scheme"?  :-)  Besides, unless
PGP is the ONLY way the info is sent via the Internet, the data won't be
safe.  Sending things via e-mail is just like posting them to a newsgroup
as far as privacy goes.

Personally, my biggest concern wasn't so much the passage of personal data
through the system, encrypted or not, but the ease of faking e-mail so
that some unscrupulous person could easily give you a fake e-mail address
and personal data of another person to retrieve a copy of *that other
person's* credit report.  I wonder what kind of safeguards they have in
place to prevent this, or to make sure that those who contact them via
e-mail really are who they say they are?

According to what I've read on misc.consumers and elsewhere, you can simply
register with any of the credit reporting services as a landlord, and you
don't even need an SSN# - just a name and address.  $50 and a name and
address.  Scary, isn't it?  So what's to prevent "anyjoe" from getting
anyone's credit data through the Internet, now?  With security there's not
just protection of data, there's authentication.  The old "how do I know
that you're who you say you are" question.

And, concern #3, if he has this data on his Internet site, how safe is
it?  How many security precautions has he taken on that site to protect
the data?  Unix machines on the Internet are notorious for having security
holes that need to be plugged.

A lot of questions and so far no answers! :-)  Comments anyone?

The Electronic Frontier Foundation needs your help to ensure privacy rights!

                     * DISTRIBUTE WIDELY *

Monday, February 7th, 1994

From: Jerry Berman, Executive Director of EFF
      jberman@eff.org


Dear Friends of the Electronic Frontier,

I'm writing a personal letter to you because the time has now come for
action. On Friday, February 4, 1994, the Administration announced that it
plans to proceed on every front to make the Clipper Chip encryption scheme
a national standard, and to discourage the development and sale of
alternative powerful encryption technologies. If the government succeeds
in this effort, the resulting blow to individual freedom and privacy could
be immeasurable.

As you know, over the last three years, we at EFF have worked to ensure
freedom and privacy on the Net. Now I'm writing to let you know about
something *you* can do to support freedom and privacy. *Please take a
moment to send e-mail to U.S. Rep. Maria Cantwell (cantwell@eff.org) to
show your support of H.R. 3627, her bill to liberalize export controls on
encryption software.* I believe this bill is critical to empowering
ordinary citizens to use strong encryption, as well as to ensuring that
the U.S. software industry remains competitive in world markets.

Here are some facts about the bill:

Rep. Cantwell introduced H.R. 3627 in the House of Representatives on
November 22, 1993.  H.R. 3627 would amend the Export Control Act to move
authority over the export of nonmilitary software with encryption
capabilities from the Secretary of State (where the intelligence community
traditionally has stalled such exports) to the Secretary of Commerce. The
bill would also invalidate the current license requirements for
nonmilitary software containing encryption capablities, unless there is
substantial evidence that the software will be diverted, modified or
re-exported to a military or terroristic end-use.

If this bill is passed, it will greatly increase the availability of
secure software for ordinary citizens. Currently, software developers do
not include strong encryption capabilities in their products, because the
State Department refuses to license for export any encryption technology
that the NSA can't decipher. Developing two products, one with less secure
exportable encryption, would lead to costly duplication of effort, so even
software developed for sale in this country doesn't offer maximum
security. There is also a legitimate concern that software companies will
simply set up branches outside of this country to avoid the export
restrictions, costing American jobs.

The lack of widespread commercial encryption products means that it will
be very easy for the federal government to set its own standard--the
Clipper Chip standard. As you may know, the government's Clipper Chip
initiative is designed to set an encryption standard where the government
holds the keys to our private conversations. Together with the Digital
Telephony bill, which is aimed at making our telephone and computer
networks "wiretap-friendly," the Clipper Chip marks a dramatic new effort
on the part of the government to prevent us from being able to engage in
truly private conversations.

We've been fighting Clipper Chip and Digital Telephony in the policy arena
and will continue to do so. But there's another way to fight those
initiatives, and that's to make sure that powerful alternative encryption
technologies are in the hands of any citizen who wants to use them. The
government hopes that, by pushing the Clipper Chip in every way short of
explicitly banning alternative technologies, it can limit your choices for
secure communications.

Here's what you can do: 

I urge you to write to Rep. Cantwell today at cantwell@eff.org. In the
Subject header of your message, type "I support HR 3627." In the body of
your message, express your reasons for supporting the bill. EFF will
deliver printouts of all letters to Rep. Cantwell. With a strong showing
of support from the Net community, Rep. Cantwell can tell her colleagues
on Capitol Hill that encryption is not only an industry concern, but also
a grassroots issue. *Again: remember to put "I support HR 3627" in your
Subject header.*

This is the first step in a larger campaign to counter the efforts of
those who would restrict our ability to speak freely and with privacy.
Please stay tuned--we'll continue to inform you of things you can do to
promote the removal of restrictions on encryption.

In the meantime, you can make your voice heard--it's as easy as e-mail.
Write to cantwell@eff.org today.

Sincerely,

Jerry Berman
Executive Director, EFF

Subject: Campaign Against Clipper 

CPSR ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN TO OPPOSE CLIPPER PROPOSAL

contact: rotenberg@washofc.cpsr.org  (202 544 9240)

Washington, DC -- Following the White House decision on Friday to
endorse a secret surveillance standard for the information highway,
Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility (CPSR) today announced
a national campaign to oppose the government plan.

The Clipper proposal, developed in secret by the National Security
Agency, is a technical standard that will make it easier for government
agents to wiretap the emerging data highway.

Industry groups, professional associations and civil liberties
organizations have expressed almost unanimous opposition to the plan
since it was first proposed in April 1993.

According to Marc Rotenberg, CPSR Washington director, the
Administration made a major blunder with Clipper.  "The public does not
like Clipper and will not accept it. This proposal is fatally flawed."

CPSR cited several problems with the Clipper plan:

o The technical standard is subject to misuse and compromise. It would
provide government agents with copies of the keys that protect
electronic communications.  "It is a nightmare for computer security,"
said CPSR Policy Analyst Dave Banisar.

o The underlying technology was developed in secret by the NSA, an
intelligence agency responsible for electronic eavesdropping, not
privacy protection. Congressional investigations in the 1970s disclosed
widespread NSA abuses, including the illegal interception of millions of
cables sent by American citizens.

o Computer security experts question the integrity of the technology.
Clipper was developed in secret and its specifications are classified.
CPSR has sued the government seeking public disclosure of the Clipper
scheme.

o NSA overstepped its legal authority in developing the standard.  A
1987 law explicitly limits the intelligence agency's power to set
standards for the nation's communications network.

o There is no evidence to support law enforcement's claims that new
technologies are hampering criminal investigations. CPSR recently forced
the release of FBI documents that show no such problems.

o The Administration ignored the overwhelming opposition of the general
public. When the Commerce Department solicited public comments on the
proposal last fall, hundreds of people opposed the plan while only a few
expressed support.

CPSR today announced four goals for its campaign to oppose the Clipper
initiative:

o First, to educate the public about the implications of the Clipper
proposal.

o Second, to encourage people to express their views on the Clipper
proposal, particularly through the computer network.

Toward that goal, CPSR has already begun an electronic petition on the
Internet computer network urging the President to withdraw the Clipper
proposal. In less than one week, the CPSR campaign has drawn thousands
of electronic mail messages expressing concern about Clipper. To sign
on, email clipper.petition@cpsr.org with the message "I oppose clipper"
in the body of the text.

o Third, to pursue litigation to force the public disclosure of
documents concerning the Clipper proposal and to test the legality of
the Department of Commerce's decision to endorse the plan.

o Fourth, to examine alternative approaches to Clipper.

Mr. Rotenberg said "We want the public to understand the full
implications of this plan.  Today it is only a few experts and industry
groups that understand the proposal.  But the consequences of Clipper
will touch everyone.  It will affect medical payments, cable television
service, and everything in between.

CPSR is a membership-based public interest organization.  For more
information about CPSR, send email to cpsr@cpsr.org or call 415 322
3778.  For more information about Clipper, check the CPSR Internet
library CPSR.ORG. FTP/WAIS/Gopher and listserv access are available.

CYBERSPACE SUPERHIGHWAYS: ACCESS, ETHICS and CONTROL

Cyberspace, Information Superhighway, National Information Infrastructure,
Open Platforms, Computer and Communications Revolution, Electronic Networks,
Digital Data Bases and Information Society are words and phrases common to the
rhetoric of our modern era.  The relationships between and among individuals,
society, nations, government entities and business organizations are in
constant flux as new stresses and alliances change the old "rules of the
game."  Today's challenges are to define what is the "game," who owns the
"franchises," who can play, what are the rules and who calls the shots.
Information and communications technology raise new issues for freedom and
privacy in this new era.  Such questions are on the agenda as the participants
in CFP'94 consider the alternatives and seek some solutions.  Come, join in
the dialogue that will help to shape the world's future!

PRE-CONFERENCE TUTORIALS

On Wednesday March 23, the day before the formal conference begins, CFP '94 is
offering a number of in-depth tutorials covering a wide variety of subjects on
five parallel tracks.  These presentations will be interesting, educational,
thought-provoking and often controversial.  The tutorials are available at a
nominal additional registration cost.

CONFERENCE NEWSPAPER

On each of the three days of the conference, a daily newspaper will appear to
highlight what has transpired and announce important coming events.  The staff
of "The Decisive Utterance," The John Marshall Law School's student newspaper,
is providing this service.


CONFERENCE RECEPTION AND TECHNOLOGY DISPLAY

On Wednesday evening, from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., you are invited to meet new
and old friends and colleagues at an opening reception at the John Marshall
Law School from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. The School is only two blocks from the
conference hotel.  A state-of-the-art computer lab will be used to demonstrate
high-tech applications in academia and registrants will be invited to take
part.

SINGLE-TRACK MAIN PROGRAM

The technological revolution that is driving change in our society has many
facets and we are often unaware of the way they all fit together, especially
those parts that lie outside one's own daily experience. An important goal of
CFP '94 is to bring together individuals from disparate disciplines and
backgrounds and engage them in a balanced discussion of CFP issues.  To this
end our main program, starting on Thursday, March 24, is on a single track
enabling registrants to attend all sessions.  The concurrent Birds-
of-a-Feather meetings Thursday after 9:15 p.m. are exceptions.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER SESSIONS (BoF)

CFP '94 will provide a limited number of meeting rooms to interested
individuals for informal "Birds of a Feather" sessions after the formal
program Thursday, from 9:15 p.m. - 11:15 p.m.  These sessions will provide an
opportunity for special-interest discussions. For further information or to
request a BoF contact CFP '94 Program Coordinator, Gary Gassman, at the John
Marshall Law School (6gassman@jmls.edu)

MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY GALA

Registrants are invited to a very special reception and buffet at Chicago's
famed Museum of Science and Industry where they also will be treated to a
private showing and demonstration of the MSI's newly-opened Communications and
Imaging Exhibits.  These multi-million dollar presentations occupy 15,000
sq.ft. of museum space and required three years to develop.  "Communications"
is a panoramic display of how technology has transformed our lives by
dissolving distance and and making connections; visitors can even enter the
unreal world of virtual reality. "Imaging" is a mindboggling journey through
modern applications of imaging technology.  Visitors can even play the role of
brain surgeon, using radiosurgery made possible by 3-D imaging, or explore
imaging in forensic science by using MRI, fingerprint enhancement, face aging
and other modern technologies to solve a crime!

REGISTRATION WILL BE LIMITED

CFP '94 registration will be limited to 550 attendees, so we advise you to
register early to assure admission and to take advantage of the early
registration discounts.

MEALS AND RECEPTIONS

A key component of the CFP conferences has been the interaction between the
diverse communities that constitute our audience.  To promote this interaction
CFP '94 provides three luncheons, three receptions and three evening meals
with the price of registration.

EFF PIONEER AWARDS

All conference attendees are invited to the EFF Pioneer Awards Reception
sponsored by the Electronic Frontier Foundation on Thursday evening.  These,
the third annual EFF Pioneer Awards, will be given to individuals and
organizations that have made distinguished contributions to the human and
technological realms touched by computer-based communications.

CONFERENCE BUSINESS OFFICE

The Conference business and registration office will be open from 8:00 a.m.
until 9:00 p.m. on Wednsday thru Friday, and until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, for
registration and general information.

NOTE: The following program content and schedule is subject to change. The
Information Superhighway is a fast track!

Wednesday, March 23, 1994
Pre-Conference Tutorials

9:00 a.m. - noon

     Cyberspace Law for Non-Lawyers
     This tutorial presents an outline of the law for laymen,
     dealing with Constitutional and legal issues that confront
     those concerned with privacy, crime, and freedom of expression
     in cyberspace. There will be summaries of recent cases,
     legislative proposals and government activities.
          Mike Godwin, Online Counsel, EFF

     Rules of the Road for Network Travelers. (CLE Credit Approved)
     The information superhighway presents a variety of rights and
     risks.  Learn about the legal issues of computer networks,
     services and bulletin boards, including on-line property
     rights; protecting personal privacy and business information;
     electronic publishing and multimedia rights; viruses, adult
     materials and other no-nos.
          Lance Rose, Attorney and Author of "Syslaw."

     Get Mad, Get Motivated, Get Moving!
     The focus of this panel is on citizen action for privacy
     protection: how to reach and organize constituents; support
     legislation or other privacy protection measures; conduct
     public education activities; use the technology in program
     activities, etc.
          Robert Ellis Smith, Privacy Journal

     Exploring Internet: A Guided Tour
     This tutorial gives participants a practical introduction to
     the most popular and powerful applications available via the
     world's largest computer network, the Internet.  There will be
     hands-on demonstrations of communications tools such as e-
     mail, conferencing, Internet Relay Chat and resource discover,
     and navigations aids such as Gopher, WAIS, Archie and World
     Wide Web.  Extensive documentation will be provided.
          Mark Graham, Pandora Systems

     Using the Freedom of Information Act
     The Federal FOIA is the principal focus of this tutorial
     though some attention is given to the use of  state FOIAs.
     The session will cover procedures for making requests,
     identifying the information desired, differences between
     electronic and hard copy responses, and the appeals process
     within agencies and the courts.
     David Sobel, Counsel, Computer Professional for Social
     Responsibility

     2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

     Cryptography: What, and How?
     Data encryption is in the cyberspace limelight as perhaps the
     only technique to ensure digital privacy and security; it is
     also the subject of sharp debate regarding control of the
     development and use of the technology.  This tutorial will
     display what encryption is, how it works, and some of the
     options for its use.  Computer animations and graphic displays
     will be used to help make cryptography comprehensible; the
     audience will engage in some hands-on encryption exercises.
          Mark Hellmann, Pattishall, McAuliffe et.al, Chicago

     Electronic Detectives: Critical Issues for Public and Private
     Investigators.
     Both governmental and private sector investigators have
     unprecedented access to "open" sources that were practically
     inaccessible a few years ago.  This information environment
     poses opportunities and risks that will be the focus of this
     program.  Investigative techniques via networks will be
     demonstrated and the legal, ethical and practical issues will
     be explored.  Actual case-studies will be utilized.
     Michael Moran, CCO; Michael Robertson, CFE

     Hi-Tech Intellectual Property Law Primer (CLE Credit Approved)
     This panel will cover the special problems in patent,
     copyright and tradmark law engendered by computers and digital
     technology, with attention to the impact of recent cases.  The
     differences in European protection will be surveyed as well as
     technology export restrictions.
          Raymond Nimmer, University of Texas Law School
          Leslie A. Bertagnolli, Baker & McKenzie, Chicago

     Transactional Data Analyses: Making FOI Access Useful
     Electronic communication, coupled with federal and state
     Freedom of Information Acts, has made a great deal of data
     available to the public regarding the activities and policies
     of government enforcement and regulatory agencies.  Knowing
     how to evaluate and use this information is critical to
     understanding and demonstrating what the data really means.
     The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) of
     Syracuse University uses its various knowledge-bases to
     demonstrate the power of transactional data.  Colorgraphics
     and analytic techniques are combined in demonstrations of how
     otherwise drab statistics can be displayed dramatically to aid
     in policy analyses and advocacy.
          David Burnham, former New York Times Investigative Reporter
          Susan Long, Co-director, TRAC, SUNY-Syracuse

     Election Fraud and Modern Technology
     There has been increasing attention, in the U.S. and abroad,
     to the use of modern technology in the electoral process.
     Buying votes, stealing votes, changing votes -- whether in the
     environment of punch-cards or fully automated voting machines
     -- is the subject of this tutorial.  Mock elections will be
     staged in which the participants have roles in planning to
     perpetrate as well as prevent vote fraud.  Voter registration,
     phone-based voting, cryptography and verification are among
     the strategies and technologies to be considered.
     Russel L. Brand, Reasoning Systems.

          President, Washington, D.C.

10:00 a.m. Break

10:30 a.m.  The Information Superhighway: Politics and the Public
           Internet.
     The Administration and Congress propose policies that will

     built at affordable cost while serving the public interest and
     our constitutional values?
     Chair: Jerry Berman, Electronic Frontier Foundation


12:00 p.m.  Lunch
               Speaker: U.S. Senator Paul Simon (Invited)

1:30 p.m.  Is It Time for a U.S. Data Protection Agency?
     Beginning with the Privacy Act of 1974, proposals to establish
     an oversight body for data protection have been offered but
     not adopted; another proposal is currently pending in
     Congress.  Against a background of almost twenty years
     experience under the Privacy Act, the panel will consider
     whether the current political, economic and technological
     mileau favors establishment of a data protection agency.
     Chair: Priscilla M. Regan, George Mason University

 2:45 p.m.  Break

 3:00 p.m.  "Owning and Operating the NII: Who, How, When?"
     The National Information Infrastructure is an important
     initiative for the present Administration.  This panel will

     connectivity and standards, funding and regulation, privacy
     and security, ownership and operation.
     Chair: Marc Rotenberg, Computer Professionals for Social

 4:15 p.m.  Break

 4:30 p.m.  Data Encryption: Who Holds The Keys?
     Recent attempts, led by federal law enforcment agencies, to
     control the development and dissemination of strong
     cyptography programs has engendered considerable discussion
     and disagreement.  The interests of law enforcement agencies
     may conflict with the need for data security and personal
     privacy demanded by users of electronic networks.  This panel
     will evaluate proposals to deal with the question.
     Moderator: Willis Ware, Rand Corporation

5:30 p.m. Adjourn

6:00 p.m.  EFF Awards Reception

Friday, March 25, 1994.

8:30 a.m.  Keynote: David Flaherty, Data Protection Commissioner,
           Victoria, British Columbia

9:15 a.m.  Health Information Policy
     The Clinton Health Reform Plan, and variations on that theme,
     stress the use of information technology to help the
     efficiency and effectiveness of health care.  Expert
     consultation, improved service delivery through new
     technology, and improvements in the processing of health
     insurance claims bring promise of cost cuts as well as the
     possibilities of threats to personal privacy.  This panel of
     experts will form the "CFP Group" to explore these promises
     and threats.
     Chair: Robert R. Belair, Mullenholz & Brimsek, Wash., D.C.

10:30 a.m.  Break

10:45 a.m.  Can Market Mechanisms Protect Consumer Privacy?
     When does protection of consumer privacy require legal
     standards and government regulation and when can bargains and
     agreements in the market suffice?  What role do new
     technological options for individuals and organizations play
     in facilitating private choice and market transactions?  Is
     "ownership" of personal information a useful concept or a dead
     end for privacy protection in an information age?
     Chair: Dr. Alan F. Westin, Columbia University

Noon      Lunch, Speaker: Philip Zimmerman, PGP

1:30 p.m.  Creating an Ethical Community in Cyberspace
     The fundamental ethical questions posed by the "settlement" of
     cyberspace are not new.  What is new is that the relationship
     between behavior and the ethical conceptions by which we judge
     behavior shift and become more ambiguous and vague.  This
     sessions examines the ethical dilemmas brought about by the
     "colonization" of cyberspace that must be resolved to
     establish and maintain a stable, humane environment.
     Chair: Prof. James Thomas, Northern Ilinois University

2:45 p.m.  Break

3:00 p.m.  Standards for Certifying Computer Professionals
     The subject of licensing of computer professionals is
     receiving increased attention by professional organizations
     and by state legislatures.  Both the ACM and IEEE have
     proposals under study, and perhaps a half-dozen states are
     considering licensing bills.  This panel will consider the
     pros and cons and suggest some standards for certification.
     Chair: Donald Gotterbarn, East Tennessee State Univ.

4:15 p.m.  Break

4:30 p.m.  Hackers and Crackers: Using and Abusing the Networks
     This session will explore issues surrounding the "fringe" of
     network use.  What can and should be exchanged?  Who will
     monitor "appropriate" use?   What's the current difference, if
     any, between "hacker" and "cracker"?  What should be expected
     and accepted regarding the role of law enforcement agencies?

5:30 p.m. Adjourn

5:45 p.m. Buses begin departing for the Chicago Museum of Science
          and Industry for a private reception and demonstration at
          the Communications and Imaging exhibits.

          Chicago's "Loop."

Saturday, March 26, 1994

9:00 a.m.  The Role of Libraries on the Information Superhighway
     As the information landscape changes dramatically the historic
     role of libraries as the "information commons" is challenged.
     How will the Carnegie ideal of free, public access be
     implemented by the library community?  Should it be?  This
     panel will consider policy for an information network in the
     public interest.
     Moderator: Tamara J. Miller, President, Library and
                Information Technology Association

10:15 a.m. Break

10:30 a.m.  International Governance of Cyberspace: New Wine in Old
               Bottles -- Or Is It Time For New Bottles?
     Much discussion transpires between members of the Economic
     Community, the O.E.C.D., the Council of Europe, and the United
     States, regarding data protection, intellectual property
     rights, transborder data flow, the mediation of disputes, etc.
     This panel will consider whether existing mechanisms can solve
     the problems or a new structure for the governance of
     cyberspace is needed.
     Chair:  Ronald L. Plesser, Piper and Marbury

Noon:  Lunch
          Speaker: Simon Davies, Director General, Privacy
          International

1:30 p.m. The Electronic Republic: Delivery of Government Services
        over the Information Superhighway
     State and local governments use computer networks to deliver
     a wide range of services and information to the public;
     electronic "kiosks" are moving to "government by ATM."  How
     will this interaction between government and the people affect
     the process of American government in the future?
     Chair: Dennis McKenna, Publisher, "Government Technology."

2:45 p.m.  Break

3:00 p.m. Education and NREN, K - 12
     Internetworking is a very new technology being rapidly
     deployed to conventional classrooms, a very old technology.
     The panel will explore the clash of contradictory assumptions
     embedded within these systems -- a clash which has profound
     implications for the future of both the network and the
     classrooom.
     Chair: Steven Hodas, NASA NREN Project


4:00 Break

4:15 p.m.  Guarding the Digital Persona
     After this panel has established the threats to personal
     privacy from individual profiling and target marketing, and a
     regime to legally recognize and protect an "electronic
     personality" is put forth, Bruce Sterling will offer to
     explain why much of that worry is misdirected!
     Chair: Roger Clarke, Australian National University
