Many of the current security and vulnerability concerns associated with the Internet are the product of deliberate design philosophy and choices regarding functionality that characterized the early days of the Internet. EDIT PLAYLIST INFORMATION DELETE PLAYLIST

  1. 1 Show/Hide More David Clark, The Design Philosophy of the DARPA Internet Protocols, ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review, 1988
    Journal Article, 8pg. This paper captures some of the early reasoning which shaped the Internet protocol suite, TCP/IP, when it was first developed by DARPA.
  2. 2 Show/Hide More Lawrence Lessig, Code 2.0, Ch. 4: Architectures of Control, 2006
    This chapter demonstrates how the architecture of the Internet shapes the way we use it and the possibilities of regulation—code is law. The original design was not concerned with control and pushed complexity to the edges of the network. The trade-off between security, control, privacy, and connectivity is decided, to a certain extent, at the architecture level.
  3. 3 Show/Hide More David G. Post, In Search of Jefferson’s Moose, Ch. 1: Chaos, 2009
    This book provides a conceptual framework through which newcomers can begin investigating the cyber-frontier. Rather than providing a technical understanding of the elements of the network, it poses some critical questions for understanding how cyberspace works and who makes the rules in cyberspace. This set of questions provides a useful framework to keep in mind while diving into the more technical sections.
