Towards a sustainable governance of the Internet

EuroDIG this year was a virtual meeting from June 10 – 12, 2020.

The Internet Society staff participated in the following sessions:

Internet of Things / Core Internet Values – what characteristics of IoT Good Practice and Core Internet Values have contributed to the success of the Internet and IoT to support a world living under Covid19 lockdown?

Time: 10 June 2020 at 18:30-20:00 CEST (UTC+2)

Session description:

Has the Covid19 Pandemic triggered the need to change IoT Good Practices or Core Internet Values because of the paradigm shift that it has caused in the world?

In parallel with the Pandemic, this year has seen the proposal for New Internet 2030 in the New IP group at the ITU. This proposal includes a replacement of most, if not all Core Internet Values, with a new model for the Internet’s underlying transport layer, plus all of the Governance Model that the Internet relies on.

Why should this model be, or not be embraced, in the context of Internet of Things Devices, and of Core Internet Values?

Key participants:

  • Paul Blaker – Head of Global Internet Governance, DCMS UK Government
  • Vint Cerf – Chief Internet Evangelist, Google
  • David Conrad – Chief Technical Officer, ICANN
  • John Grant – Chair of Non IP Networking ISG, ETSI
  • Marco Hogewoning – Senior External Relations Officer, RIPE NCC
  • Olaf Kolkman – Principal, Internet Technology, Policy and Advocacy, Internet Society
  • Anthony Rutkowski – Principal, Netmagic Associates LLC

Co-moderators: Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond, DC CIV and Shane Tews, DC IoT
