The Electronic Frontier Foundation has been an advocate for encrypting not only web-based connections between clients and webservers, but for encrypting all internet traffic. Dr. Jeremy Gillula, tech projects director for the EFF, joins Mike Mimoso for a discussion about the technologies and directions required to ensure that encryption of internet traffic is the default moving forward. In this podcast, you'll hear about how industry collaboration led to the development and growth of Let's Encrypt, a CA distributing free SSL certificates, as well as how mainstream awareness of surveillance post-Snowden is driving adoption of encryption technology. Finally, Jeremy and Mike discuss how email, server, and DNS encryption are the next hills to climb in this effort to secure all internet traffic.
