Moderator: Jon Callas, Senior Technology Fellow, ACLU

Panelists: Riana Pfefferkorn, Associate Director of Surveillance and Cybersecurity, Stanford Center for Internet and Society; Daniel J. Weitzner, Founding Director, MIT Internet Policy Research Initiative; Matt Blaze, Georgetown University


In the panel, our four experts will discuss the background of "Crypto Wars" of the past, and thus how we got to our current situation; how this Crypto War is different from the last one(s); the international issues and where the present threats to encryption are coming from; and how we experts at large might measure the problem and see what other mitigations might help before we go shooting ourselves in the face.
