Letters – Mixed-up message.

In reporting my remarks to the ICAS Fraud Conference (Fraud office calls for web fraud law reform, 1 March, page 2) I think you were being unduly pessimistic.

I did not say digital signatures were dangerous, nor that it would not be long before they are misused. I said that one-day someone will find a way to misuse a digital signature as part of committing a fraud, which is not the same.

We are well served in this country in having legislation covering digital signatures. I do not think they are dangerous, which may have been the message to your readers.

Stephen Low, assistant director, Serious Fraud Office.
