Our SAINT-colleague Latif Ladid from Université du Luxembourg closes day 1 of the 2017 Internet Days. In his keynote, he brings the challenges of the new Internet into the picture. A Multi-Billion Nodes network will run on IPv6 to give every node a unique identifier. That will enable a new two-way internet, where resources are shared much agiler than today. While this can improve the user experience, it also raises new challenges in privacy and security.
