Chapter 10. THE LEAST YOU SHOULD DO TO G... > Keeping Your Data Private

Keeping Your Data Private

Let's start with your home computer. If you are like most people, you probably keep a good deal of personal information on your machine. Perhaps most of that information is useful only to you. However, you might also store information that pertains to your finances, health, or other aspects of your life that you do not want to share with others.

The information on your machine can reside in a variety of places and forms. Some of these are plain files (and directories), or passwords, encryption keys, cookies, e-mail address books, Web favorites or bookmarks, and browsing history. We describe some of the more criticalitems and also the controls you can use to protect them. The section “Some Key Concepts” has some basic definitions of terms used in this chapter. A more complete list of definitions is in Appendix A, “Glossary.”
