San Francisco - The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) yesterday published a landmark report on trusted computing, a technology designed to improve security through hardware changes to the personal computer.


The report, entitled "Trusted Computing: Promise and Risk," maintains that computer owners themselves, rather than the companies that provide software and data for use on the computer, should retain control over the security measures installed on their computers. Any other approach, says the report's author Seth Schoen, carries the risk of anticompetitive behavior by which software providers may enforce "security measures" that prevent interoperability when using a competitor's software.
