Felaktigt beslut om incidentrapportering?

Idag beskrivs i Svenska Dagbladet i en artikel det beslut som förväntas i Riksdagen relaterat till incidentrapportering.

Låt mig vara tydlig: Jag tycker med min nu 30-åriga erfarenhet av att driva Internet operativt att Regeringen inte tänkt riktigt rätt.

Först måste man bestämma och förklara VAD man vill ska hända, vad ska göras av “den […]

Security and things…

The polarized discussions related to “bad things on the net” continues. Everyone from the Prime Minister of Sweden talking about how powerful tool viruses controlled by the police would be, to the Anonymous attacking Daesh on the net.

I have been kind of silent the last week just because I have not had any idea […]

Effective deployment of broadband?

I see in the Swedish Newspaper SvD an article where the minister of IT, Kaplan, states the new directive regarding access to ducts will be revolutionary for broadband deployment. Sure, it might be better than the situation today, but unfortunately not give the boost that he is talking about.

DANE and SMTP

Jan Žorž of Internet Society has written a text describing results of lab tests of DANE and SMTP at Go6Labs. The findings seems to be that if either of the MX or the TLSA records in the DNS is unsigned, then delivery of SMTP will not happen over the TLS protected connection if the cert […]

Finansieringsfrågor runt DAB

Jag ser en artikel i Dagens Media där SBS Radios vd sågar Riksrevisionens rapport, bl.a. skriver han:

– Det finns ett antal direkta felaktigheter som hela tiden återkommer i debatten kring digitalradion. Samma sak kommer nu från Riksrevisionen.

Han framhåller att det är radiobranschen, Sveriges Radio samt de kommersiella aktörerna, som kommer att bära hela […]

IANA Stewardship Transition

In various discussions before and during the ICANN52 meeting in Singapore I have heard too many people mixing up improvement of current processes with what I think is the IANA Stewardship Transition Process.
