Crypto-Apero Weaponised IoT edition

"...the street finds its own uses for things", as writer William Gibson famously observed.

Will our robot overlords actually be re-purposed devices that we are filling our homes and lives with?

In this edition of Crypto-Apero we'll take a look at how tech is re-purposed for unintended, often bad uses; how shiny tech devices become useless paperweights; and also examine the ecosystem of an AI controlled IoT device as well as the ecological impact our love affair with devices is producing.

Few are the topics that can be so polemical. At the crossroad of moral indignation, religious zealotry, social debates, entertainment, and freedom of expression, the portrayal of sexual subject matter for the purpose of sexual arousal has spilled from the physical into the digital world, pulling users continuously towards new technologies and trends.

The specifications imposed by the Rotondes on the crypto-apéro were clear: bring in another approach to IT and information security. So it shall be.

We are proud to announce our 2nd crypto apero of the season: "The Internet is for Porn" Edition.

From a computer security standpoint, such an approach can only arouse. Online porn has driven technological developments again and again, spread malware, democratized the usefulness of high bandwidth for many, and demonstrated the impact piracy can really have on a market. Privacy policies directed at the online porn industry will have far wider consequences than the intended target of protecting underage viewers.

As Luxembourg is the world capital of online porn, it is our duty to examine the potential technological dangers, privacy impacts, security issues and solutions for everyday users (that is asking for a friend type). We will not talk about the morality of this topic - only the IT and cybersecurity aspects.

Special guest: The recent general elections saw the first use of porn sites for political advertising in the history of Luxembourg. Why? How? What results? Sven Clement, president of the Pirate Party Lëtzebuerg and newly elected Député will tell us more about this online campaign.
