This is a presentation I gave with Chris from @SecEvangelism, at H.O.P.E 9, in NYC July 13 2012.
A dark and seedy journey to explain the real driver behind internet innovation, porn. How an economy built on the ultimate satisfaction just a click away has driven technological advances. Racy browsing habits involving our innermost secrets, vulnerable parties and criminal syndicates have driven malicious code and subsequent security advances. Broad ranging censorship involving much more than pornography has been the end result in attempts to reign in such “unhealthy” habits by good intentioned governments and organizations. Join us through the timeline of pornography on the internet, related security threats, an overview of industry economics (legal and ≈ illegal) and related censorship.
