Some security and privacy issues in the 21st century Internet

Dr Stephen Farrell 
Research Fellow

The talk will describe some of the ways in which Internet security and privacy have evolved over the past couple of decades. In brief, we have seen and will review some improved deployment of security technologies but in an increasingly hostile environment, yet we also continue to see the same mistakes being made e.g. the absence of small-device software update. The conclusion can be optimistic or pessimistic, depending on one's point of view. However, it is clear that Internet security and privacy issues will clearly continue to create employment opportunities for defenders and attackers.
