On Tuesday, 14 June, Chief Internet Technology Officer Olaf Kolkman gave a keynote presentation at TNC ’16 on collaborative security and the Internet of Things.

During “Collaborative Security – Reflections about Security and the Open Internet,” he discussed how an open Internet is a powerful driver for social, technical, and economic interaction. Its success is based on Invariants like openness and permissionless innovation – properties that not only create opportunities but also contribute an increased threat surface to the Internet.

Security responses are often premised at preventing bad things locally and not on the global properties that need protection. Individual actors need to take into account an external perspective to trade off their actions toward the bigger Internet. He reflects on resiliency, outward facing security, and governance, and gives some examples of collaborative security and the difficulty of them getting traction.

His slides are also available online at https://tnc16.geant.org/getfile/2833.

We hope you enjoy Olaf’s keynote, and read our Collaborative Security paper to learn more.
