lecture: The Internet (Doesn't) Need Another Security Guide
Creating Internet Privacy and Security Resources That Don't Suck
As Internet privacy/security professionals and amateur enthusiasts, we are often asked to give advice about best practices in this field. Sometimes this takes the form of one-on-one advice to our friends, sometimes it's training a room full of people, and sometimes you may be asked to write a blog post or a brief guide or an entire curriculum. This talk will survey the current Internet privacy guide landscape and discuss the perils and pitfalls of creating this type of resource, using the Electronic Frontier Foundation's Surveillance Self Defense project as a case study.
As a result of the Snowden leaks, we are learning more and more about the capabilities of potential adversaries such as the NSA, GCHQ, and agencies within China, Russia, and Israel with every passing day. With each new revelation, there is greater uncertainty about privacy and security best practices, especially if your threat model includes a state-level adversary.
This talk will discuss the following points:
What resources already exist?
How should best practices change in light of the Snowden leaks?
What makes a good security/privacy resource?
How did the Electronic Frontier Foundation confront these questions while rewriting their Internet privacy guide?
