Bruce Schneier is a leading expert on cryptography, who has written over a dozen books on the subject.


Schneier is critical of the "war on terror". In 2008 he referred to the TSA and terms their policies as "security theater".[1] In 2015 he wrote in The Atlantic on How the NSA Threatens National Security.[2]

Commenting on a leaked copy of the Compliance with Court Orders Act, which he termed "the most braindead piece of legislation I've ever seen," he opined that whoever "wrote this either has no idea how technology works or just doesn't care."[3]

“It is poor civic hygiene to install technologies that could someday facilitate a police state.”
Bruce Schneier (2000)  [4]
