Software-only digital encryption

A British company has developed a software-only complete encryption solution based on the latest Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for protecting digital information. The new product, CyphaLock (currently in beta), can apparently encrypt data to a 256-bit key size as standard and is being promoted to media companies seeking to protect their digital video and audio assets.

CyphaWare, its developers, claim that the software "can render a complete MPEG 1, 2, 4 or MP3 file secure while retaining the original encoding format". The product can also integrate with Microsoft Media Player 9, giving those people using the Microsoft Digital Rights Management solution 256-bit encryption instead of MP9's standard 40-bit key size, whilst retaining MPEG encoding.

Scientometric OAI Search Engines

Stevan Harnad has mailed an announcement concerning new developments in the area of scientometric OAI search engines. Citebase (see 1.) is a prototype OAI service (see 2.) now available free, to give research authors, users, their institutions and their research-funders a foretaste of what is coming and what is possible. The developers are hoping that by demonstrating the remarkable possibilities that a full-text citation-linked open-access corpus opens up, citebase will help to accelerate the rate at which the refereed research literature is made openly accessible online through institutional self-archiving.

For those new to the subject, gain a thorough understanding from: Eprints.org, a site dedicated to opening access to the refereed research literature online through author/institution self-archiving.

LOCKSS - distributed library project

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the US National Science Foundation (NSF) have independently awarded two new, two year grants totaling almost US$ 3 million to the LOCKSS ("Lots Of Copies Keep Stuff Safe") Program. The LOCKSS program is a joint undertaking of Sun Microsystems Laboratories and Stanford University Libraries to develop a secure, reliable system which safeguards and preserves access to digital publications. A total of 49 libraries, including the Library of Congress are currently running Linux systems with the LOCKSS software as part of a long-term test.

• The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant is intended to support the production, development and implementation of distributed electronic journal archives through LOCKSS.

• The National Science Foundation and Sun Microsystems Laboratories plan to continue funding core technology development, focusing on the peer-to-peer (P2P), fault-tolerant aspects of the system.

The LOCKSS project, initiated in October 1998, is based on Java and Linux technology, with the aim of creating an open-source, easy to use, distributed system, which runs on low-cost computers without central administration. Designed as an Internet appliance, the LOCKSS system preserves access to authoritative versions of web-published materials. The program is currently in a worldwide beta test focused on integrity, usability, and software performance, including impact on network traffic. The beta software has been released as open source, and is available on Sourceforge web site.

European patent protection reform

International Intellectual Property Rights campaigner, Mandy Haberman, has hired The Internet PR Company to set up an online virtual events forum "www.makesparksfly.com" to promote patent protection reform across Europe. An interactive web site is being developed which is "aimed at people with ideas who want to develop them into commercially viable products or services, and wish to interact with policy makers and representatives from commercial organisations, funding bodies, business advisors, intellectual property experts, legal and insurance professionals".

It is hoped that the online community will raise awareness of the issues surrounding intellectual property and will be based on a series of high profile monthly expert debates will cover a wide range of topics and themes. The launch debate on November 5, 2002, will feature a live online opinion leader discussion chaired by Peter Martin of the Sunday Times on the topic: "Are Patents Worthwhile for an Inventor?". The scope of the debate will seek to uncover answers to burning issues such as:

• just how strong should patent protection be?
• has the current patent protection system outlived its current usefulness?
• how can the right mixture of incentive (protection) and costs (licensing and enforcement) be achieved?
• should "non-obviousness" and "novelty" criteria be tightened?
• how can small inventors be assisted in levelling up the litigation process against patent infringers?

Interested parties may register participation prior to the event.

Economics of Digital Libraries CFP

Papers are invited for a special issue of the "Journal of Digital Information (JoDI)" on the Economics of Digital Libraries, to be edited by Simon Tanner of the Higher Education Digitisation Service (HEDS) at the University of Hertfordshire, UK. The submission deadline is 18 October 2002, with a publication date of February 2003. From the call - "Economic Factors of Managing Digital Content and Establishing Digital Libraries":

"There are several aspects to the effective utilization of resources in relation to digital information. The immediate start-up costs of either creating or purchasing digital content; the further implementation costs for establishing a digital library or even just basic access to bought resources; which are followed by the costs implicit in managing and maintaining a digital resource in the longer term. Hand-in-hand with resource expenditure is the value and benefit derived from the resource itself, and how these are measured and offset against costs".

Papers are invited for this issue of JoDI that can deliver new insights and research findings related to the economic factors of managing digital content and establishing digital libraries. JoDI is an electronic journal published only via the web and is currently free to users thanks to support from the British Computer Society and Oxford University Press.

Matador spam filter beta

MailFrontier, has released a beta version of its anti-spam product, Matador. Available as a free downloadable desktop client it is aimed at individual users of Microsoft Outlook (2000 and 2002) running on Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP. According to its developers Matador uses the tried and trusted tools such as blacklists and message filtering, and in addition provides:

• a dynamically devised and maintained set of personalised preferences;
• collaboration with other Matador users to identify spam by hitting a junk button on the Outlook toolbar, this prevents other Matador users from receiving the same junk email;
• sender verification where suspect, unsolicited email is subjected to an extra check and the sender is asked to answer a simple challenge via email. Unauthorised emails are treated as junk after a period of time.

Business models for content industry

Pascal Jacques, Head of the Interactive Electronic Publishing sector of DG Information Society has forwarded an announcement concerning a special session at the IST 2002 conference entitled: "Next Generation of Business Models for the content industry". Billed as a networking session, the draft agenda will be based on the market monitoring of e-content industry carried-out by the ACTeN Project, with the issue of new business models being discussed on the basis of case study presentations from various European Markets. As explained in the rationale for the workshop on the IST2002 Conference web site:

"The downturn in the telecom and Internet markets and the failure to develop strong pay for content strategies has put the producers and creative community into a tough economic situation. Rapid transformations of markets based on new platforms, software, devices and forms of usage put additional pressure on practitioners to invest and keep up-to-date and come up with the right business strategies. Much of the technological developments can be planned, but the business side and the actual economically successful implementation represent presently the critical challenges. The rationale of the workshop is to provide IST participants with well-structured views from experts".

Peter Bruck of ICCM New Media is acting as the coordinator of the event. Details of how to take part are published on the IST 2002 Conference web site (see link below), though the exact date and location have yet to be published.

The IST 2002: "Partnerships for the Future" Conference aims to to help build the European Research Area for the Information Society within the EU’s 6th Framework Programme for Research and Development (FP6), which is to be launched at the end of 2002. Held at the Bella Center, Copenhagen on 4-6 November, IST 2002 will broaden its scope to everyone with a strategic interest in Information Society research, whether at European, national or regional level - or even entirely within the private sector.
