IP Inferno Interview with Zimmermann Tuesday
We at IP Inferno are looking forward to Tuesday morning, when we're scheduled to interview encryption and privacy advocate Phil Zimmermann, about whom we've written previously. The plan is to publish that interview in Q&A format here tomorrow, so be sure to visit.
And if you have questions for Phil, be sure to write us today, and we'll fold those into the interview as time permits.
Among the things we'll be talking about will be the recent FCC ruling requiring broadband providers to make their networks accessible to federal wiretapping.
Zimmermann's announcement two weeks ago that he plans to launch a product called "zphone" could, in theory, throw a spanner into the FCC's plans by enabling VoIP users to encrypt their phone calls so as to make them resistant to just such a wiretapping effort. No doubt Zimmermann will have a few things to say on that issue.
