Drawing on the first-hand experiences of one of the most important protagonists in the battle - the Citizen Lab and its global network of frontline researchers, who have spent more than a decade cracking cyber espionage rings and uncovering attacks on citizens and NGOs worldwide - Black Code takes readers on a fascinating journey into the battle for cyberspace. Thought-provoking, compelling, and sometimes frightening, it is a wakeup call to citizens who have come to take the Internet for granted. Cyberspace is ours, it is what we make of it, Deibert argues, and we need to act now before it slips through our grasp.

Deibert led the Citizen Lab in uncovering Ghostnet, from the discovery in the compromise of the Dalai Lama’s computers to the widespread spying on government organizations in many countries. This well written and fascinating book takes you inside the hunt. It discusses the future of the fast changing Internet and the dark world of cyber war and organized crime. It also discusses how governments in democratic countries are invading our privacy, with the cooperation of large corporations.

The ebook and physical book are at the OPL.
