Misnamed article?[edit]

The name of this article seems to reflect a common misconception about the term "security". The article Communication security has the same problem. Security is a broader concept than maintaining secrecy of communication, and in particular the objectives of communication security include secrecy, authenticity, integrity and non-repudiation. For example, communication could still be described as secure if it is effectively impossible to modify a message in transit without detection, even if the information content is in the clear. I would suggest that since the article only addresses the one component of communication security, namely secrecy, it should be renamed accordingly (unless, of course, it is broadened to cover the field). — Quondum 10:37, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Article Quality[edit]

This article seems like it is written from a first-person perspective. It also speaks opinion as fact, for example: it is probably safe to say — Preceding unsigned comment added by Leifanator (talkcontribs) 21:53, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
