This chapter discusses how Internet security governance occurs via national and international policies, the private sector, and new institutions such as certificate authorities and computer emergency response teams. It gives particular attention to securing some of the central technologies of Internet governance such as the Internet’s routing system and the Domain Name System (DNS). It also examines the increasing connection between Internet security and politics, including forms of dissent using distributed denial of service attacks and the emergence of Internet security as a proxy for national security.
