So far Chui has run through data from Arbor Networks ATLAS and a history of IoT-based DDoS, which I’ll skip tweeting.

@DDsD This grows out of Geoff’s work trying to explain to the politicians why data retention isn’t going to solve anything for them.

Geoff continues to comment on how the internet is built using such terms as “Shit!”, “Whacko!”, and “They’re all on drugs!”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

With phones on random internal IPs, and websites on random CDN addresses, only DNS holds it all together.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“If anyone from Europe thinks that IP addresses are PII then they ARE on drugs.” — Geoff Huston7

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Geoff has ranted about this previously, but now he’s adding the complexity of IPv6 threaded through IPv4. Or is it vice versa?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Logging all this stuff at 5 to 96MB per user per day keeps politicians and storage vendors happy, but it’s not really much use.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

With Carrier Grade NAT (CGN) you need all this to get data retention right. pic.twitter.com/3iFrnd62jN

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Geoff is stepping through the reasons why law enforcement assumptions about telco data retention are 30 years out of date.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@michaelneale The latter. You often get that with projectors, and boosting the contrast emphasises the effect.

Geoff begins by haranguing the entire internet for screwing up the IPv4 to IPv6 transition. As you do. pic.twitter.com/Gsji3Pdwiy
