The Internet continues to reshape the way individuals and organizations interact with the world, and it, in turn, is being reshaped by many forces, including ones grounded in business demands, regulatory initiatives, and worries about security. On the security front alone, the future entails extremely difficult tradeoffs that implicate some of Internet architecture’s most sacred cows, including end-to-end network connectivity and open PC operating system design.

This keynote session explores those trade-offs to see if there is a way to ‘thread the needle’ – to enable the boom in Internet innovation and user empowerment to continue while satisfying the forces that will otherwise stop it.
