the original call for papers for the W3C/IAB "Strengthening The Internet Against Pervasive Monitoring (STRINT)” Workshop and then subsequently that the STRINT submitted papers were publicly available, I feel compelled to close the loop and note that a report about the STRINT workshop has been publicly published as an Internet-draft. It is available at:
The authors of the workshop report include members of both the W3C and IAB who were active in the workshop. As the abstract states:
The STRINT workshop assembled one hundred participants in London for two days in early 2014 to discuss how the technical community, and in particular the IETF and the W3C, should react to Pervasive Monitoring and more generally how to strengthen the Internet in the face of such attacks. The discussions covered issues of terminology, the role of user interfaces, classes of mitigation, some specific use cases, transition strategies (including opportunistic encryption), and more. The workshop ended with a few high-level recommendations, which it is believed could be implemented and which could help strengthen the Internet.
The document goes on to summarize the recommendations of the workshop, outline the goals and structure and then dives into reporting on the various topic areas covered during the workshop. The document concludes with several appendices including the workshop agenda, a description of all the submitted papers, and a list of all the participants. The document is a first draft that was published on April 28, 2014, and so you can expect to see updates made as other participants have a chance to see the text and correct any errors or omissions. Stephen Farrell is maintaining the document on Github and so you can look there for the latest text in development.
If you are interested in how the technical community believes the Internet should be strengthened against pervasive large-scale monitoring, the workshop report is definitely worth a read.
a chance to record a video interview with IETF Security Area Director Stephen Farrell, one of the authors of this STRINT workshop report, where he spoke about what had happened at the STRINT workshop and where that work is going next. You may find that 5 minute video a useful complement to the larger report.P.S. I'll also note that at the IETF 89 meeting in London in March, I had
