Trends of Privacy and Surveillance in the Information Society

Abstract : In the late 1980s, when large computers still dominated the application of Information Technologies to enterprise, industrial development and university research, and when small computers and networks had only begun to develop, some experts (mainly from the USA) predicted that future IT could be applied to government agencies as "Community Information Utilities (CIUs)". As contemporary IT was regarded inadequate (insufficient process and storage capacities, no remote access, missing system and software application), a moratorium for applications was suggested until the adequate IT would be available. Visions included many advantages for the citizen, such as availability and accessibility of public information and direct access for citizens to services from governments and agencies, to support "Free Flow of Information (FFO)" (as enshrined in the constitution of the USA). Experts suggested developments to related software, but technical matters concerning protection in hardware, systems and application programs were not addressed, and protection of the citizens private information - aka privacy - was not sufficiently discussed.
