       Report from the Strengthening the Internet (STRINT) Workshop


   The Strengthening the Internet (STRINT) workshop assembled one    hundred participants in London for two days in early 2014 to discuss    how the technical community, and in particular the IETF and the W3C,    should react to Pervasive Monitoring and more generally how to    strengthen the Internet in the face of such attacks.  The discussions    covered issues of terminology, the role of user interfaces, classes    of mitigation, some specific use cases, transition strategies    (including opportunistic encryption), and more.  The workshop ended    with a few high-level recommendations, that it is believed could be    implemented and could help strengthen the Internet.  This is the    report of that workshop.

   Note that this document is a report on the proceedings of the    workshop.  The views and positions documented in this report are    those of the workshop participants and do not necessarily reflect IAB    views and positions.
