Event description

Description

The FCC is currently engaged in rulemaking around broadband privacy, deciding how to protect consumers' expectation of privacy in certain components of internet traffic while also ensuring that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are able to manage their networks and, in appropriate circumstances, use and share customers' network information for other purposes.

Princeton University's Center for Information Technology Policy and The Center for Democracy & Technology invite you to attend "Understanding Technical Issues in Broadband Privacy", a lunch workshop on May 10 where technologists will discuss technical issues in broadband privacy alongside policy experts.

There are a number of technical topics that are important for the policymaking community to understand in order to effectively weigh in on these issues. Key technical topics include the role of device, software, and network identifiers as personal information, the role of encryption in limiting what ISPs can access, and how network inspection technologies such as deep-packet inspection (DPI) may factor in.

Join a group of technical and policy experts to discuss these issues from a diverse set of perspectives in a mini-workshop environment, where we will first educate you about each technical topic and then offer perspectives from industry, academia, and civil society. Featuring:

  • Richard Bennett, American Enterprise Institute

  • Nick Feamster, Princeton University

  • Joseph Lorenzo Hall, CDT

  • Jim Halpert, DLA Piper

  • Laura Moy, Georgetown University

  • Peter Swire, Georgia Tech

  • Harlan Yu, Upturn
