Nanotechnology and civil security

Abstract:
Security is becoming an increasingly important facet of global society. The issues are many-fold and include protecting citizens and state from organized crime, preventing terrorist acts, and responding to natural and man-made disasters. A new report from Nanoforum, titled "Nanotechnology and Civil Security" describes nanotechnology applications for civil security and divides this into four broad sections:

Detection, including imaging, sensors and sensor networks for the detection of pathogens and chemicals;

Protection, including decontamination equipment and filters, and personal protection;

Identification, including anti-counterfeiting and authentication, forensics, quantum cryptography and the market for counterfeit and grey goods;

Societal impacts, including current regulatory and ethical frameworks, potential impacts on ethics and human rights, and public perception.
