History of the Disclosure Debate

The Rudimentary Treatise on the Construction of Locks was penned by locksmith Alfred C. Hobbes, shedding light on early lock construction. He acknowledged the rising debate over discussing the security/insecurity of locks, arguing for disclosure in the name of innovation: > In respect to lock-making, there can scarcely be such a thing as dishonesty of intention: the inventor produces a lock which he honestly thinks will possess such and such qualities; and he declares his belief to the world. If others differ from him in opinion concerning those qualities, it is open to them to say so; and the discussion, truthfully conducted, must lead to public advantage: the discussion stimulates curiosity, and curiosity stimulates invention. This would earmark the beginnings of the debate on revealing the insecurities of security solutions for the sake of improving security.
