Holding networks accountable with open source transparency

Holding our ISPs and companies accountable for providing us with an open and fair Internet is as vital a task now as it ever has been.

This talk will start by describing the policy landscape that's gotten us to where we are with a focus on the US situation. Then we'll survey the landscape of existing projects promoting accountability, like the OONI and Satellite censorship measurement systems and the MLAB speed test suite. A particular emphasis will be placed on covering how you can run measurements and participate in these systems. Finally, we'll talk about how these systems can help influence policy, and why this data has been and can continue to be important in influencing policy.
