Abstract

   RFC 3552 introduces a threat model that does not include endpoint
   security. In the fifteen years since RFC 3552 security issues and
   cyber attacks have increased, especially on the endpoint. This
   document proposes a new approach to Internet cyber security protocol
   development that focuses on the user of the Internet, namely those
   who use the endpoint and are the most vulnerable to attacks.

1. Introduction

   Data breaches are on the rise: personal data is stolen and often
   leaked or sold on a never-before-seen scale. The truth is that
   malware and ransomware attacks impact the most vulnerable in our
   global societies today. But the key to better privacy is better
   security and cyber defence. And better cybersecurity, ultimately,
   results in even better privacy. However, even though IETF attendees
   are privacy-focused, policy and design decisions taken by the IETF
