This webinar reviews research on internet traffic security guidelines and best practices. The recently published white paper (link below) of the same name provides the platform for the webinar.

The authors of the white paper detail security mechanisms necessary for consideration, at the manufacturing design phase, leading up to deployment of devices to internet service providers and end users. The authors assert that a thorough study on protecting internet traffic does not yet exist, and propose, based on their findings, that existing technology is not yet sufficient to meet the goal of protecting internet traffic. The best practices presented are centered around countering and preventing malicious activity. By setting up a secure network with industry standard security protocols, the risk and potential legal liabilities associated with an unsecured network can be proactively addressed.
