vint-cerf-et-al-on-internet-security

I had the pleasure to attend the recent security summit at the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (webcast is available, but only if you have quicktime and IE7 apparently, which ain't me) and getting to hear Vint Cerf and a very strong group of panelists. Here are my take-aways:

  • When you sell your company for big bucks, you get to be on panels at colleges. Maybe this is because the event was held in the Chris Klaus building.
  • The internet needs better, stronger authentication - and not just the user, but better Damballa a local Atlanta start-up spun out of Georgia Tech to help ISPs address the bot problem. Good luck to those guys. Seems like cool technology.

    One interesting anecdote from Cerf: He was working on a more secure networking protocol while also working on TCP/IP. The problem: his work was for the NSA and was classified.

    The panelist were asked if they banked online. Everyone but Dickie George of the NSA said they did. That prompted my question: Does the NSA's credit union offer online banking?
