Limited Capacity seats available

Revelations that intelligence agencies have been tapping into backbone Internet links and subverting standards processes and security technologies have spurred the Internet's engineer community to harden core Internet protocols and reexamine standards setting processes. This panel will discuss: what is the state of Internet and web security and cryptography in the shadow of these revelations? What kinds of proposals are gaining traction in technical standard-setting forums like the IETF? What NIST is doing from within the US government to evaluate federal information processing standards? What does the current landscape look like from the perspective of an innovative secure communications start-up?
