Governments have a special responsibility among stakeholders to make the Internet secure.  However, the Snowden revelations revealed that many governments, including the US, use the Internet to monitor, spy on and attack other governments, organizations, individuals and businesses. In March, we also learned that China is using the Great Cannon, a new malware tool to censor information.  These revelations have stimulated a global backlash against pervasive Government data collection, Internet surveillance, and government use of malware and netizens are increasingly worried about Internet stability and security.

On May 18, 12:30-2, The Institute for International Economic Policy at The George Washington University (IIEP) and the Greater Washington DC Chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC-DC) will jointly host a moderated discussion between Bruce Schneier, noted authority on cybersecurity and Chris Riley, Vice President and Head of Public Policy at Mozilla.

Our panel will discuss how increasing surveillance and use of malware could impact the future of the Internet, including:

  • Increased pressure from law enforcement for backdoors to encryption;
  • Increased calls for data localization (as in France);
  • International pressure influencing the IANA transfer;
  • Less legal emphasis/protections on privacy at national levels;
  • Less trust in government policies and strategies to maintain Internet stability;
  • The threat of Internet fragmentation.
     

Panelists:

Bruce Schneier, Security Technologist and Author

Bruce Schneier is an internationally renowned security technologist, called a “security guru” by The Economist. He is the author of 12 books – including his latest best-seller Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust Society Needs to Survive – as well as hundreds of articles and essays, and many more academic papers. His influential newsletter “Crypto-Gram,” and his blog “Schneier on Security,” are read by over 250,000 people. He has testified before Congress, is a frequent guest on television and radio, served on several government technical committees, and is regularly quoted in the press.

Chris Riley, Head of Public Policy, Mozilla

M. Chris Riley is a Senior Policy Engineer at Mozilla, working to advance the open Internet and Web through public policy analysis and advocacy, strategic planning, coalition building, and community engagement. Prior to joining Mozilla, Chris worked as a program manager at the U.S. Department of State on Internet freedom, a policy counsel with the non-profit public interest organization Free Press, and an attorney-advisor at the Federal Communications Commission. Chris holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University and a J.D. from Yale Law School. He has published scholarship on topics including innovation policy, cognitive framing, graph drawing, and distributed load balancing.

This panel is organized by Dr. Susan Aaronson and Kyle Renner of IIEP and David Vyorst of the Greater Washington DC Chapter of the Internet Society and is part of a larger seminar series. We are grateful to an anonymous donor for their support of these seminars.

Coming Monday, May 18th, 2015!

2nd Annual IPN Speakers Conference

Showcasing Delay & Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN): the Emerging Standard for Space Data Communications

Last year’s IPN speaking event—Space Technology Innovations: Enabling Exploration Above, Improving Life Below—presented how DTN can enable space data communications as well as provide network services in constrained terrestrial network environments. This year we are focusing upon DTN in the space arena. Our speakers include:

  • Vint Cerf (Google VP, co-author of TCP-IP, one of the “fathers of the Internet—and IPN-ISOC board member) will provide an overview of InterPlanetary Networking.
  • The NASA/Boeing team (Brett Willman & Suzanne Davidson) working on DTN aboard the International Space Station
  • The NASA team (David Israel & Donald Cornwell) who concluded the very successful Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration in late 2013 and who are planning the 2017 Laser Relay Communication Demonstration.
  • Scott Burleigh (JPL’s chief DTN architect) will be explaining recent significant enhancements to the ION DTN distribution (the distribution currently in use on ISS).
  • Keith Scott leads the Consultative Consortium for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) DTN working group that is standardizing DTN protocols for use in civilian space missions.  He will talk about the Bundle Protocol becoming one of the networking protocols being standardized for space communication as part of the Solar System Internet (the other is IP).
  • Scott Pace is the Director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University. He will be speaking about the increasing importance of space policies as more nation states engage and collaborate in space exploration.

Admission is free and breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack will be provided—but you MUST register to attend. Physical attendance is limited to 150 people. The event will be webcast on the Internet Society’s LiveStream channel and presentations will be available on YouTube for VOD streaming after the event.

The event starts at 9 a.m. Speakers conclude at 4:30 p.m. IPN-ISOC Meeting follows immediately after and concludes at 6 p.m.

trustmeThe Internet has made it easier than ever for entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes to participate in the global marketplace. But they face a number of public policy challenges related to cybersecurity, privacy, and trade.

How can security experts, businesses, governments, and policy makers meet the complex tasks necessary to maintain the trust needed to ensure the future of global innovation – the lifeblood of economic growth?

  • How can public policy and trade policy set clear rules of the road to help businesses and entrepreneurs succeed globally?
