Internet Security Through Multi-stakeholder Cooperation

24 October 2013 - A Workshop on Multistakeholderism in Bali, Indonesia


A secure, functioning Internet is in the interest of all stakeholders and users of the Internet. The objective of the workshop is to clarify and map the security work carried out in the Internet ecosystem and the ways in which multi-stakeholder cooperation is central to achieving the shared goals of security, openness, and resilience. The workshop will look at the the key organisations and forums in the technical community and elsewhere that are key to these security efforts, and how they interface with other actors, particularly those in government, law enforcement. How successful is this interface and what parties, if any, are missing in this process? 

The workshop will look at the security work in the standardisation process at the IETF, the coordination work by the CERTs (Computer Emergency Response Teams) and other security-related organisations, and the capacity building activities that have developed across stakeholder lines through the cooperative efforts of the technical community and law enforcement agencies. Participants will be encouraged to identify best practices, as well as areas where further development is needed to realise the potential of a multi-stakeholder security model.
