In this AirBNB Tech Talk, EFF's Technology Projects Director Peter Eckersley will survey they state of Internet security and surveillance in the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations. It is unlikely that we can protect most Internet users against sophisticated, targeted attacks by their governments, but there is more reason to be optimistic that we might shield the bulk of users' data against the type of dragnet surveillance that the US and other governments are conducting.

Peter will discuss the things that individual users can currently do to achieve stronger communications security; the (often very subtle) technical aspects to deploying HTTPS/TLS/SSL securely on the server side; some of the important places where our existing protocols are letting us down from a security and privacy perspective; and what we could do to change that.
