TPRC paper presentation: Standardizing Security (TLS 1.3)

Milton Mueller and Colin Kiernan present their research on the development of a new transport layer security (TLS) standard and its implications for the privacy of Internet users and the security and accountability of network operators. TLS version 1.3 was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) from 2014 – 2018 in reaction to a major political controversy over surveillance. Analyzing the controversies around its design, adoption and implementation illuminates the role of technical standards in the governance of cybersecurity and the Internet. It also contributes to an ongoing theoretical debate about the degree to which protocols or standards can be considered “political.”
