Topic: Advancing Cybersecurity through NGP (Next Generation Protocols)

Description: The threats to our networks and ecosystems are continuously increasing in capability and frequency. Subjectivity in standards and protocol implementation are common attack methods and often quite difficult to prevent or detect. What can we do to both reduce these types of attacks yet build in future proof protections?

Standards based upon “assumed trust” will need to transition to a model of “assumed harm”. How can we establish such a paradigm shift yet maintain performance, flexibly and interoperability?
