‹ Back

The Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace (GCSC) is developing norms and policy initiatives that intend to counter the risk to the overall security and stability of cyberspace due to rise of offensive cyber-activities, and especially those by states. During this session, the Commission wants to inform and engage with the IETF community on its work so far and the work that is in the pipeline.

The panel takes place during lunch on Tuesday, 17 July, at Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel alongside IETF 102.

Abstract

In this global environment we see conflict between states takes new forms, and cyber-activities are playing a leading role. There is an increasing risk of undermining the peaceful use of cyberspace and a growing for need norms and policies to enhance international security and stability.

The Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace, with commissioners from diverse backgrounds, sets out to develop proposals for norms and policies to enhance international security and stability and guide responsible state and non-state behavior in cyberspace.

During this lunch panel we want to engage with the IETF community to discuss the norms the commission has proposed so far:

In addition, we want to talk about the other norms and policy initiatives that the commission is currently undertaking, including on vulnerabilities, their exploitation, and disclosure.

The panelists are:

  • Irina Rizmal, researcher at the DiploFoundation specialized in policy analysis in matters pertaining to national security and defense.
  • Bill Woodcock, Commissioner and Executive Director at Packet Clearing House, the non-profit agency that supports critical Internet infrastructure.
  • Jeff Moss, Commissioner, founder of Black Hat and Defcon, member of the DHS Homeland Security Advisory Council, and former ICANN CSO.

The panel is moderated by Olaf Kolkman, GCSC Commissioner and Chief Internet Technology Officer of the Internet Society.
