Maybe, just maybe, there is scientific hope for the Right to Privacy. At once, ruminating upon the Declaration of Universal Human Rights*** and the United State's 4th Amendment to the Constitution** , hope doth, truly spring eternal...
The National Institute of Standards and Technology has announced the second co-sponsored Privacy Engineering Workshop, slated for the 15th and 16th of September, 2014 in San Jose, California. Co-sponsored with the International Association of Privacy Professionals, the Workshops mandate is a focus on engineering objectives (in draft) and the necessitated Risk Model (that model was a key output of the first Privacy Workshop).
Constitution of the United States, Amendment IV**
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 12***
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
