dotCrime Manifesto, The

Phillip Hallam-Baker

Internet crime keeps getting worse...but it doesn't have to be that way. In this book, Internet security pioneer Phillip Hallam-Baker shows how we can make the Internet far friendlier for honest people-and far less friendly to criminals. The dotCrime Manifesto begins with a revealing new look at the challenge of Internet crime-and a surprising look at today's Internet criminals. You'll discover why the Internet's lack of accountability makes it so vulnerable, and how this can be fixed -technically, politically, and culturally. Hallam-Baker introduces tactical, short-term measures for countering phishing, botnets, spam, and other forms of Internet crime. Even more important, he presents a comprehensive plan for implementing accountability-driven security infrastructure: a plan that draws on tools that are already available, and rapidly emerging standards and products. The result: a safer Internet that doesn't sacrifice what people value most: power, ubiquity, simplicity, flexibility, or privacy. Tactics and strategy: protecting Internet infrastructure from top to bottomBuilding more secure transport, messaging, identities, networks, platforms, and more Gaining safety without sacrificing the Internet's unique power and valueMaking the Internet safer for honest people without sacrificing ubiquity, simplicity, or privacy Spam: draining the swamp, once and for allWhy spam contributes to virtually every form of Internet crime-and what we can do about it Design for deployment: how to really make it happenDefining security objectives, architecture, strategy, and design-and evangelizing them How to Build a Safer, Better Internet You'll find yourself deeply concerned, then fascinated, then hopeful as you read about* Building an Internet that resists online crime* Phishing, botnets, and spam: tactical, workable, immediate countermeasures * Establishing the "Accountable Web": a strategic, long-term solution to Internet crime * Improving security without sacrificing what people love about the Internet The Internet is today's Wild West: too much lawlessness, too little accountability.
