Law/Patents
Dutch term or phrase: kwaaadopzet
Still a military context but "kwaadopzet" should be a legal term.

Text to translate:

De beveiliging (la sécurité, security) : is het geheel van veiligheidsmaatregelen in de strijd tegen kwaadopzet.
°°°

Eurodicautom: evil intent or ill-willed intent

"Act with evil intent" sounds horrific!

Anyone with a good legal dictionary?

Translation suggestions of the whole phrase appreciated.

Reus bedankt!
