IEEE CS Webinar on Future of Internet Wiretapping

Cybersecurity expert Susan Landau, co-author of a recent IEEE Security & Privacy article on expanding the US Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) from digital telephone networks to emerging IP-based communications, will discuss the Future of Wiretapping during an IEEE Computer Society instant webinar at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT on Tuesday 4 June.

Register now to hear how mobile IP-based communications and changes in technologies are becoming a concern for law enforcement, which is seeking to extend current wiretap design requirements to IP networks. Landau and Steven M. Bellovin, Matt Blaze, Sandy Clark, co-authors of the Security & Privacy article "Going Bright: Enabling Legally Authorized Wiretapping While Securing Communications Infrastructure," contend that such an extension would create considerable security risks as well as seriously harm innovation. The extension has also been the subject of recent news reports and a New York Times editorial.

Landau is well recognized for her work in the areas of cybersecurity, privacy, and public policy. She was a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, and has been a faculty member at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Wesleyan University. She has also held visiting positions at Harvard, Cornell, and Yale universities, and the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute. Landau is the author of Surveillance or Security? The Risks Posed by New Wiretapping Technologies (MIT Press, 2011), and co-author, with Whitfield Diffie, of Privacy on the Line: The Politics of Wiretapping and Encryption (MIT Press, 1998, rev. ed. 2007).

She has testified to US Congress on wiretapping and cybersecurity issues, and has briefed legislators in Europe and the US on various cybersecurity concerns, including encrytption, surveillance, and digital-rights management. Landau serves on the Computer Science Telecommunications Board of the National Research Council, and has been a member of the advisory committee for the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering, the Commission on Cyber Security for the 44th Presidency, and on NIST's Information Security and Privacy Advisory Board
