      Report from the Strengthening the Internet (STRINT) workshop
                       draft-iab-strint-report-02

Abstract

   The Strengthening the Internet (STRINT) workshop assembled one
   hundred participants in London for two days in early 2014 to discuss
   how the technical community, and in particular the IETF and the W3C,
   should react to Pervasive Monitoring and more generally how to
   strengthen the Internet in the face of such attacks.  The discussions
   covered issues of terminology, the role of user interfaces, classes
   of mitigation, some specific use cases, transition strategies
   (including opportunistic encryption), and more.  The workshop ended
   with a few high-level recommendations, which it is believed could be
   implemented and which could help strengthen the Internet.  This is
   the report of that workshop.

   Note that this document is a report on the proceedings of the
   workshop.  The views and positions documented in this report are
   those of the workshop participants and do not necessarily reflect IAB

1.  Context

   The Vancouver IETF plenary[vancouverplenary] concluded that Pervasive
   Monitoring (PM) represents an attack on the Internet, and the IETF
   has begun to carry out the more obvious actions required to try to
   handle this attack.  However, there are additional much more complex
   questions arising that need further consideration before any
   additional concrete plans can be made.

   The W3C [1] and IAB [2] therefore decided to host a workshop [3] on
   the topic of "Strengthening the Internet Against Pervasive
   Monitoring" before IETF 89 [4] in London in March 2014.  The
   FP7-funded STREWS [5] project organised the STRINT workshop on behalf
   of the IAB and W3C.

   The main workshop goal was to discuss what can be done, especially by
   the two standards organisations IETF and W3C, against PM, both for
