Bruce Schneier tackles sociology of trust and security

Bruce Schneier's latest book, Liars and Outliers, is a departure from his previous landmark books on cryptography and information security. In Liars and Outliers, Schneier pulls back from technology and looks at trust and security and how those very human concepts have evolved in concert with  the development of cooperative societies to build the trust and security mechanisms we have today.

In this interview conducted at RSA Conference 2012, Schneier explains his interest in the sociology of security and trust and how today's online interactions are changing the trust dynamic. He paints a not-so-bleak picture of why the Internet remains a trustworthy and viable platform for communication and ecommerce, and talks about whether social networking and technical feedback mechanisms comprise the new trust going forward.
