Abstract:

Nonetheless, deployment of a number of potentially beneficial and important Internet capabilities appears to be slowed or stalled for lack of sufficient commercial incentives. The primary concern is with public goods where market forces alone might not be sufficient to drive widespread adoption. Timely and relevant examples are drawn primarily from the areas of network security and cybersecurity. How might government identify and prioritize those capabilities where intervention is warranted‘ What actions on the part of industry and government are necessary and appropriate in order to ensure that societally significant problems, including network security and robustness, are addressed in the Internet‘
