Interesting. Video link down.
First thought is that the paper lays out basics. Nation states and industry will seek equilibrium in this Wild West of code, access, and of course money/influence. This will play out in interesting ways. I see some real problems with lone wolves, small groups, and the genuinely bad guys. I know the larger players may very well do bad things, but specifically the smaller ones could punch above their weight. That's the problem. Individuals and small groups can be tied into group think just like the larger ones. Thiene has given some great lectures, etc. at defcon and in his writings.
I'm sure that part of data mining from large players is part of an effort to find the people with skills to cause harm. I'm sure Everyone at defcon, black hat, and others as well as cert training are put on lists. Colleges as well. It only makes sense to try to learn who these people are. Recruit or keep an eye on them?
Snowden shows however that only one out of 500k? People with clearance or just access can cause a great deal of damage. The u.s. has to come to grips with the fact that these young people may have agendas that are difficult to ferret out. Everyone (heiarchy of needs) wants to achieve. They also want to be the good guys whatever that may mean. We the older generation fed them science fiction, great struggles/causes, injustices in the world and then let them face reality with unemployment and high student debt. Is it any wonder of them haven't gone over the edge of cliff? Especially the smart ones, they feel the disconnect between the world they want and what they see. I can't remember the German word right now
Anyway the modern world is facing a real problem along these lines in my opinion. Older people have enough time and experience to discuss and see the grey areas that are really almost the whole length of bell curve, the young people lack a great deal. The biggest one on display right now is that it is just as important to do the right thing in the right way as is to do it in the first place.
Past struggles showed a willingness to put yourself on the line facing the firehoses or legal system. Too many are not showing a real understanding of history and let the law of unintended consequences play out. Their actions may actually make things worse in regard to what they are fighting. Imagine if the civil rights movement had chosen guerrilla warfare tactics?
I know I'm an old fart when I say these things but other than telling the kids to get off my cyber grass what else can I do but try to get their attention? ;)
