What is Privacy Lab?
Yale Privacy Lab is an initiative of the Information Society Project at Yale Law School. We explore the connection between privacy, security, and anonymity through hands-on software and hardware implementation, such as cybersecurity workshops. As the technical arm of the Information Society Project, we are quickly becoming an intellectual resource for projects around campus, strengthening the networks between technologists, lawyers, students, and researchers.
Why does Yale need a Privacy Lab?
The Yale community is increasingly concerned about digital privacy and security, an arena that requires interdisciplinary collaboration. Yale Privacy Lab is a nexus for training and discussions about these contemporary issues, as well as a resource for cryptographic and anonymity tools. Yale Law School, and the YLS Clinics in particular, need a central resource to consult for technological expertise in the swiftly-changing digital privacy landscape.
