Session teaser

While IoT development and deployment continues to expand and grow, it is also welcome that there are more and more actors in the world seeking ways forward that will allow it to do so in a responsible manner. With IoT becoming all pervasive, and increasingly a key part of our critical infrastructures, taking ethical considerations into account from the outset has become key. A precondition for responsible IoT is that it is "secure enough" to be used responsibly.

The DC IoT is currently exploring what "ethical considerations" have to be taken into account, and what can be done to come to a base-level approach for further secure roll-out and use of IoT devices, that can be trusted to be used for their purpose, and not to harm their users, or the security and stability of the Internet, itself. While a lot is going on regarding IoT in the world, as global platform, the IGF Dynamic Coalition still offers a unique place where all stakeholders can meet and discuss together on equal level, and across silos.

Your contribution is welcome!

Session description

While IoT development and deployment continues to expand and grow, it is also welcome that there are more and more actors in the world seeking ways forward that will allow it to do so in a responsible manner. With IoT becoming all pervasive, and increasingly a key part of our critical infrastructures, taking ethical considerations into account from the outset has become key. A precondition for responsible IoT is that it is "secure enough" to be used responsibly.

The DC IoT is currently exploring what "ethical considerations" have to be taken into account, and what can be done to come to a base-level approach for further secure roll-out and use of IoT devices, that can be trusted to be used for their purpose, and not to harm their users, or the security and stability of the Internet, itself.

During the IGF session, the focus will be on the following themes:

  1. What ethical considerations are important for development, deployment and use of IoT, in order to ensure that we are creating sustainable solutions with IoT? Aspects to be considered range from affordability and deployability where needed, to transparency of choice; clarity on data sharing and protection of privacy;
  2. What prerequisites are important from a security perspective, to ensure that IoT can be trusted not to be harmful to its users, nor the wider Internet; for example by, for example, being weaponised as a tool for DDOS attacks.
  3. Looking ahead – which issues will become relevant in the future for IoT development today”. This provides an open microphone for new issues to tackle in the context of future use of IoT.

The workshop will be run as an open workshop in which all participants are welcome to contribute. A number of key participants from different stakeholder groups will be invited to contribute to the discussion as "committed contributors", for brief thematic statement to which questions and reactions will be invited.

Provisional agenda for the workshop:

  1. Opening by Maarten Botterman, Chairman of the DC IoT; welcoming participants and explaining the rationale behind the work of the DC IoT and the intent of the workshop;
  2. Moderated discussion with a limited number of "committed contributors". Contributions will be provided by representatives from the Internet Society; the World Economic Forum; and Alliance for IoT Initiatives; government officials involved in national initiatives; Google and others to be confirmed);
  3. Draft conclusions by rapporteur and chair, and closure.

Format

The IGF Dynamic Coalition on the Internet of Things (IGF DC IoT) is organising an open workshop to all that want to contribute to the debate. All stakeholders are welcome. We will build on the work that has been done, so far, and for those less aware of the work of the DC so far, we recommend reading of the IGF2018 report on the DC IoT session (see below for link). There is also more information available from previous events on the DC's website: IGF DC IoT home page

A number of participants from different stakeholder groups have been invited to prepare short statements of issues specifically relating to the agenda for this year's sessions. Otherwise, the floor is open to all for further moderated discussion and contributions.
