VIDEO OF THE MONTH

In this video,  Schneier frames the IoT as: “a global decentralized robot called the Internet.” In our view, this robot is run mainly by Internet governance.  Internet security and governance issues will be the same in the Internet of things, but the governance and security issues will have much higher, physical effects. Although Schneier mentions the global, decentralized and distributed nature of the Internet (which has shaped its governance) he puts forward an old idea that doesn’t seem to fit that structure: a regulatory agency for IoT. After watching this video, we could ask: to what extent will ‘things’ will be subject to Internet governance, which includes security governance, in the future; how will Internet governance evolve in response to the influx of things connected to the Internet; will we need new Internet governance structures to maintain Internet security in things?
