  2. DNS over HTTPS (and all its friends & relations) (2019)

    Speaker: Dr. Paul Vixie

    Due to pervasive unpreparedness of users, applications, operating systems, and protocols, DNS has become an essential control point for “cyber” security. Most networks have a mix of legacy, modern, safe, and unsafe devices attached to them, and this condition won’t change as quickly as the Beyondcorp initiative might suggest. However, DNS is also an important control point for authoritarian regimes, and so “bypass” innovation is continuous, rapid, and ambitious. Here, Dr. Vixie pays special attention to the "bypass" innovation called “DNS over HTTP” or “DoH” protocol, now being strongly pushed by Mozilla, Cloudflare, and others, and outlines its problems and risks. In addition, a brief mention is made of IRTF Resolverless DNS.

  3. The 29th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony (2019) FULL SHOW

    The 29th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, September 12th at Sanders Theatre at Harvard University. It will introduce ten new Ig Nobel Prize winners. Each winner has done something that makes people laugh then think. Winners travel to the ceremony, at their own expense, from around the world to receive their prize from a group of genuine, genuinely bemused Nobel Laureates, in Harvard’s historic and largest theater. . More information about the ceremony: https://www.improbable.com/ig-about/2019-ceremony/ . More information about Improbable Research: https://www.improbable.com/

  5. USENIX Security ‘18-Q: Why Do Keynote Speakers Keep Suggesting That Improving Security Is Possible?

    James Mickens, Harvard University

    Q: Why Do Keynote Speakers Keep Suggesting That Improving Security Is Possible? A: Because Keynote Speakers Make Bad Life Decisions and Are Poor Role Models

    Some people enter the technology industry to build newer, more exciting kinds of technology as quickly as possible. My keynote will savage these people and will burn important professional bridges, likely forcing me to join a monastery or another penance-focused organization. In my keynote, I will explain why the proliferation of ubiquitous technology is good in the same sense that ubiquitous Venus weather would be good, i.e., not good at all. Using case studies involving machine learning and other hastily-executed figments of Silicon Valley’s imagination, I will explain why computer security (and larger notions of ethical computing) are difficult to achieve if developers insist on literally not questioning anything that they do since even brief introspection would reduce the frequency of git commits. At some point, my microphone will be cut off, possibly by hotel management, but possibly by myself, because microphones are technology and we need to reclaim the stark purity that emerges from amplifying our voices using rams’ horns and sheets of papyrus rolled into cone shapes. I will explain why papyrus con…

  6. The Platform Challenge: Balancing Safety, Privacy and Freedom — Alex Stamos (DataEDGE 2019)

    Alex Stamos, Professor, Freeman-Spogli Institute, Stanford University — Alex Stamos is a cybersecurity expert, business leader and entrepreneur working to improve the security and safety of the Internet through his teaching and research at Stanford University. Stamos is an Adjunct Professor at Stanford’s Freeman-Spogli Institute, a William J. Perry Fellow at the Center for International Security and Cooperation, and a visiting scholar at the Hoover Institution.

    Prior to joining Stanford, Alex served as the Chief Security Officer of Facebook. In this role, Stamos led a team of engineers, researchers, investigators and analysts charged with understanding and mitigating information security risks to the company and safety risks to the 2.5 billion people on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. During his time at Facebook, he led the company’s investigation into manipulation of the 2016 US election and helped pioneer several successful protections against these new classes of abuse. As a senior executive, Alex represented Facebook and Silicon Valley to regulators, lawmakers and civil society on six continents, and has served as a bridge between the interests of the Internet policy community and the complicated reality of platforms operating at billion-user scale. In April 2017, he co-authored “Informat…
