The Economics of Information Security

Ross Anderson und Tyler Moore haben ein zum Thema „The Economics of Information Security – A survey and open questions“ (PDF) veröffentlicht.

The economics of information security has recently become a thriving and fast moving discipline. As distributed systems are assembled from machines belonging to principals with divergent interests, we find incentives becoming as important to dependability as technical design is. The new field provides valuable insights not just into ‘security’ topics such as privacy, bugs, spam, and phishing, but into more general areas such as system dependability (the design of peer-to-peer systems and the optimal balance of effort by programmers and testers), policy (particularly digital rights management) and more general security questions (such as law-enforcement strategy).
