Quote by Bruce Schneier

Anyone, from the most clueless amateur to the best cryptographer, can create an algorithm that he himself can’t break. It’s not even hard. What is hard is creating an algorithm that no one else can break, even after years of analysis.

Bruce Schneier
Quote by Edward Snowden

Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.

Edward Snowden
Quote by Paul Herbka

Security in IT is like locking your house or car – it doesn’t stop the bad guys, but if it’s good enough they may move on to an easier target.

Paul Herbka
Quote by Emmanuel Goldstein

Most hackers are young because young people tend to be adaptable. As long as you remain adaptable, you can always be a good hacker.

Emmanuel Goldstein
Quote by Kevin Mitnick

You can never protect yourself 100%. What you do is protect yourself as much as possible and mitigate risk to an acceptable degree. You can never remove all risk.

Kevin Mitnick
Quote by Kevin Mitnick

I was addicted to hacking, more for the intellectual challenge, the curiosity, the seduction of adventure; not for stealing, or causing damage or writing computer viruses.

Kevin Mitnick
Quote by Edward Snowden

It is not data that is being exploited, it’s people that are being exploited.

Edward Snowden
Quote by Clay Shirky

It used to be expensive to make things public and cheap to make them private. Now it’s expensive to make things private and cheap to make them public.

Clay Shirky
Quote by C. Kaufman, R. Perlman, and M. Speciner. In “Network Security” 2nd Ed.

Humans are incapable of securely storing high-quality cryptographic keys, and they have unacceptable speed and accuracy when performing cryptographic operations… But they are sufficiently pervasive that we must design our protocols around their limitations.

C. Kaufman, R. Perlman, and M. Speciner. In “Network Security” 2nd Ed.
Quote by Auguste Kerckhoffs

The system must not be required to be secret, and it must be able to fall into the hands of an enemy without inconvenience.

Auguste Kerckhoffs
Quote by Claude Shannon

One ought to design systems under the assumption that the enemy will immediately gain full familiarity with them.

Claude Shannon
Quote by Whitfield Diffie

It’s simply unrealistic to depend on secrecy for security in computer software. You may be able to keep the exact workings of the program out of general circulation, but can you prevent the code from being reverse-engineered by serious opponents? Probably not. The secret to strong security: less reliance on secrets.

Whitfield Diffie
Quote by Robbie Sinclair

Security is always excessive until it’s not enough.

Robbie Sinclair
Quote by Martina Navratilova

Security used to be an inconvenience sometimes, but now it’s a necessity all the time.

Martina Navratilova
Quote by Cory Doctorow

We should treat personal electronic data with the same care and respect as weapons-grade plutonium – it is dangerous, long-lasting and once it has leaked there’s no getting it back.

Cory Doctorow
Quote by Brian Krebs

I’ve come to the conclusion that if you give a data point to a company, they will eventually sell it, leak it, lose it or get hacked and relieved of it. There really don’t seem to be any exceptions, and it gets depressing.

Brian Krebs
Quote by Art Wittmann

As we’ve come to realize, the idea that security starts and ends with the purchase of a prepackaged firewall is simply misguided.

Art Wittmann
Quote by Doug Linder

A good programmer is someone who always looks both ways before crossing a one-way street.

Doug Linder
Quote by James Scott

There’s no silver bullet solution with cybersecurity, a layered defense is the only viable defense.

James Scott
Quote by Gene Spafford

The only truly secure system is one that is powered off, cast in a block of concrete and sealed in a lead-lined room with armed guards.
