Today's Internet has proven to be such a valuable resource, so useful in enabling creative new forms of communication and commerce, that it has become a critical infrastructure underlying much of our economy and society. Unfortunately, today's Internet and the machines it connects have also become easy targets for economically and politically motivated attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in computer software and network protocols that were designed without security as a primary consideration. EIC Carl Landwehr explores what it will take to get the Internet to the next level.
