Global Commission On Internet Governance chaired by formed Swedish PM, Carl
Bildt just released their report.

Given its first audience, and the fact they highlight issues related to
internet security and privacy - I thought it would be worth sharing for

"*Recommendations:* Consistent with the International Covenant on Civil and
Political Rights, no one should be subject to arbitrary interference with
their privacy, including privacy of their communications, regardless of the
technology used. Governments should not compromise or require third parties
to weaken or compromise encryption standards, for example, through hidden
“backdoors” into the technology as such efforts would weaken the overall
security of digital data flows and transactions. The Internet technical
community should be encouraged to incorporate privacy-enhancing solutions
into the standards and protocols of the Internet, including the use of
encryption of data in transit and at rest. Access to data should be legally
warranted only where providing access does not unreasonably endanger the
security of others’ data. Laws have to be updated and norms need to be
established so that Internet companies, the technical community, law
enforcement and civil society can engage cooperatively in seeking solutions
as to how public security can be enhanced overall by new technologies,
while the privatization of law enforcement, responsibility of human rights
and governance is avoided."
