6 Two models: multistakeholder and cybersovereignty Multistakeholder: current model, represents civil society, private sector, government equally Cybersovereignty: Government have final say, civil society and private sector serve as advisors Multistakeholder: current, open Internet versus Cybersovereignty: government borders, Splinternet 7/31/136Lucas Wadman, IEEE-WISE, Splinternet vs. Open Internet More Internet governance: models

7 China ISPs are large and infrastructure robust some international traffic routed through China (mostly S. Korea, Thailand, Singapore) Can result in traffic/service interruptions If youre an international IT company, bad for business!

8 Impacts of PRISM/Verizon metadata collection go beyond privacy concerns in US Diplomatic and international repercussions if trust over the Internet is broken – its all based on trust! 7/31/138Lucas Wadman, IEEE-WISE, Splinternet vs. Open Internet Lets talk about PRISM …not Snowden, please! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Side_of_the_Moon https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_(surveillance_program)

9 US House: HR 1580, AKA Affirm the policy of the United States regarding Internet governance Similar measures taken up by previous Congresses More policy action needs to be taken ahead of International negotiations in 2014, /31/139Lucas Wadman, IEEE-WISE, Splinternet vs. Open Internet Current policy/reactions

10 #1: Status quo (currently in play) Stay the course, free Internet, sit on our cyber hands Pro: Keep Internet open and free Con: Ignore the holes in the message/leave us open to criticism on US control of Internet #2: Enhance official cyber relations Cyber Policy office in White House, to work on domestic policy issues and solid position Cybers Affairs bureau in State, to take position to international negotiations, be better prepared Pro: Stronger focus on good position, less hypocrisy than #1 Con: Appears heavy handed, costs $ 7/31/1310Lucas Wadman, IEEE-WISE, Splinternet vs. Open Internet Policy Alternatives

11 #3: More power to the people! Engage civil society in stakeholder process further, allow for more transparency and access. Make the average user care! Easier said than done. More transparency and separation between US intelligence operations and Internet – right now, doesnt look great Pro: Preferred by most users, who drive Internet economy Con: Feasible? 7/31/1311Lucas Wadman, IEEE-WISE, Splinternet vs. Open Internet More Policy Alternatives

12 Blend of #2, and #3 Build up official channels for bringing focused, reasonable model of multistakeholder to Internet governance discussions Allow users more control of data and utilize more open- sourced model for Internet structures & rules Support movements like Amash amendment. More care about privacy more respect on international Internet Advantage: Happier users = better support of model being taken into international negotiation = ensuring open Internet in the future Problems: needs money to function, but not too much. 7/31/1312Lucas Wadman, IEEE-WISE, Splinternet vs. Open Internet Policy Recommendation
