Internet Security, Internet Freedom

Date and Time
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 - 8:00am to 5:00pm
Friend Center Convocation Room
The internet is at once a means for great openness and great control - expression and exclusion. These forces have long been at work online, but have recently come to the fore in debates over the United States' cyber security policy and its increased focus on "internet freedom." The country now has a Cybersecurity "czar" that has presented a 12-part national initiative, and also has a Secretary of State that has forcefully stated the case for internet freedom. But what do these principles mean in practice?

This workshop explores how security and freedom both compliment each other and compete. A spectrum of security risks at different layers of the network beg for technical and governance solutions. Flash points like the recent Google-in-China developments highlight the nexus of security and speech. A growing discourse about internet freedom calls out for workable theories and models. This event will bring together technologists, policymakers, and academics to discuss the state of play and viable ways forward.

This workshop is free and open to the public. To register, please RSVP to citp@princeton.edu with your full name and affiliation. Registered attendees will receive lunch and a name tag.
