Why a Commons Matters

1. Do you know through what nations your internet traffic is being routed?

Border Gateway Protocol and Global Routing Tables by design are unsecure.

2. Rise of cybercrime and spearfishing data extortion attacks on members of the public.

Cybersecurity 80% humans, 20% technology; how do we to help the innocent?

Why a Commons Matters


3. Our public lives, health, and wellbeing connect increasingly direct to the internet.

What happens when the internet of things is embodied in our bodies and attacked en masse?

How a Commons Would Work


Known participants volunteer to share anonymously any attacks they observe.

1. Every node a sensor: near real-time machineto-machine exchanges at massive scale.

How a Commons Would Work

2. Akin to fire alarms: trusted commons shares alerts and patterns to all, can triangulate activities.

Known participants receive back groups collective intelligence enabling early warnings.

3. Foundation for cures: real-time longitudal data research base for fixes and cyber interventions.

Trusted commons could distribute patches or recommend changes to thwart attacks.

What a Commons Would Benefit


1. Private sector: Anonymous reporting by known entities protects private sector firms from reputation concerns or lawsuits stemming from disclosure of an attack or lost of data.

What a Commons Would Benefit


2. Non-Profits: Expands niche for cyber watchdogs; also often lack the capital for necessary cybersecurity defenses, can benefit from the collective intelligence of others.

3. Public: Could also contribute in the commons by voluntarily downloading an open source app to report attacks on a devices in return for hardening its security.
