The Internet is for Porn! How High Heels and Fishnet Have Driven Internet Innovation and Information Security

Friday, July 13, 2012: 10:00 pm (Dennis): A dark and seedy journey to explain the real driver behind Internet innovation: porn. How an economy built on the ultimate satisfaction just a click away has driven technological advances. Racy browsing habits involving our innermost secrets, vulnerable parties, and criminal syndicates have driven malicious code and subsequent security advances. Broad ranging censorship involving much more than pornography has been the end result in attempts to reign in such "unhealthy" habits by well-intentioned governments and organizations. This talk will include a timeline of pornography on the Internet, related security threats, an overview of industry economics (legal and ~illegal), and related censorship. Audience discussion and participation is welcome, but please, no BYOP.
