Making the internet more secure

How can we do it ?

The internet has always been facing threats, and so its users. But recently, the level of attention that security is gathering is going up, given the events in the news, and the new threats we hear about every day.

In a World where the "Internet of Things" is becoming a reality, the internet is still not a safe place to be, and the number, level and intensity of threats is constantly going up. This talk discusses the threats, with examples of attacks carried on in the recent past, together with the solutions being worked on to avoid them from being effective again, and also guides the audience in understanding the actions being taken at the IETF in order to make the internet safer and more robust. From discussing letsencrypt, to TLSA, RPKI and BGPSEC, this talk covers a wide range of topics and technologies.
