The Technical Plenary Planning Program sends greetings to the Privacy and
Security Program!
(okay, too formal)

We’ve been talking about future Technical Plenaries in the security and
privacy space. 

Some of the thoughts have been triggered from noticing it’s been five years
since the plenary that led to RFC7258 “Pervasive Monitoring is an Attack”
and work on pervasive encryption and so much related work. So, while
acknowledging how far we’ve come, let’s not stop here.
Are there architectural issues we can consider?
What is the future of threat? Machine Learning? Ad networks? Corporate
surveillance? Consolidation?
The James Bridle article "Something is wrong on the internet”? Social
platforms’ erosion of privacy?

We're trying to coalesces these thoughts and questions into one or several
tech plenaries, with appropriately scoped topics and speakers, and would
like help from the PrivSec program in that coalescence.

Can you help?
