The secret history of hacking

Een ‘historische’ film over het ontstaan en de eerste jaren van ‘hacking’ (1970-2000).

Wikipedia weet er het volgende van te melden: “The featured computer security hacking and social engineering stories and anecdotes predominantely concern experiences involving Kevin Mitnick. The film also deals with how society’s (and notably law enforcement’s) fear of hacking has increased over time due to media attention of hacking (by way of the film WarGames as well as journalistic reporting on actual hackers) combined with society’s further increase in adoption of and subsequent reliance on computing and communication networks. John Draper, Steve Wozniak and Kevin Mitnick are prominently featured while the film additionally features comments from or else archive footage concerning Denny Teresi, Joybubbles, Mike Gorman, Ron Rosenbaum, Steven Levy, Paul Loser, Lee Felsenstein, Jim Warren, John Markoff, Jay Foster, FBI Special Agent Ken McGuire, Jonathan Littman, Michael Strickland and others”.

Een aardige introductie in de geschiedenis van een fenomeen dat aanleiding gegeven heeft tot het ontstaan van informatiebeveiliging. De strijd tussen beide fenomenen kleurt de ontwikkeling van de ICT tot in onze tijd.
