Secrecy is alluring! Not only scholars are interested in secret knowledge and societies. In connection with Wikileaks and the question of data privacy the matter is one everyone's lips. Secrecy creates boundaries between insiders and outsiders. Knowing a secret means power and control, disclosing it brings danger. In any case, secrets arouse our curiosity – after all, who doesn't want to know what he or she is forbidden to know.
