Privacy in the Net

This issue is dedicated to a new area that is becoming increasingly important, that is Network Privacy. Privacy in general has been a great worry, because attacks can come from near or far. The introduction of data processing brought about a dramatic change in the situation, which came about without those affected being aware of it. Slowly we realized the existing situation and society as a whole started to react. The result of this has been the introduction of laws (which began in the 1970's) aimed at protecting our personal data, for example the LORTAD (Ley Orgánicade Regulación del Tratamiento Automatizado de los Datos de CarácterPersonal) approved by the Spanish Parliament in 1991, which has meant a significant relief for people experiencing problems in this area.

The present issue gives a general idea of the areas that can arise in this environment of Data Privacy, etc., in conjunction with a mixture of general articles and others that are more technical and deal with more specific aspects.
