Add my review for Web Security: A Matter of Trust (World Wide Web Journal, Vol No 3 Summer)

Book description:

Web surfing is a dangerous sport -- we are always at risk while downloading "cool" new applets, protecting secure information services, and even in trusting that a Web page comes from the stated author. The interviews, specifications, and articles in this issue of the World Wide Web Journal reframe the debate as a matter of trust rather than cryptography. This issue covers W3C's Digital Signature Initiative (DSI), which breaks new ground in this area by binding machine-readable labels to public key signatures. Other topics include medical records privacy issues (Lincoln Stein), signature legality (C. Bradford Biddle), trust in Internet information systems (Rohit Khare), the PGP Web of Trust (Simson Garfinkel), REFEREE: a trust management system for Web applications (presented at WWW6 by Yang-Hua Chu), as well as articles on Java security, the "hacker threat," and much more.
