The Internet Dream
In last year’s Black Hat keynote—entitled "Lifecycle of a Revolution"—noted privacy and civil liberties advocate Jennifer Granick told the story of the Internet utopians, people who believed that Internet technology could greatly enhance creative and intellectual freedom. Granick argued that this Dream of Internet Freedom was dying, in part because of public fear of terrorism and crime.
In this keynote, Granick revisits the state of the Internet Dream approximately one year later--looking specifically at this year’s privacy and security developments in the field of cryptography policy and surveillance.
