CITP/CDT Workshop in D.C.: Understanding Technical Aspects of Broadband Privacy

Center for Democracy & Technology 1401 K Street NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC, United States

CITP and the Center for Democracy & Technology invite you to attend "Understanding Technical Issues in Broadband Privacy," a lunch workshop on Tuesday, May 10, 2016, 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.
