Yes. I'd like to ask that we consider is step one of outreach, and that we
consider making 7-12 slides to explain captive portal risks to:
1) marketing people.
3) computer programmers (not necessarily network people)
Yup. One of the things that we've heard from multiple people is that they'd like a "survey of the industry" -a better understanding why operators deploy captive portals and also defeat the captive portal probes. We've heard a number of motivations for deploying a CP.
AUP / legal protection,
advertising (eyeballs / "watch my 30 second ad video" / "Like me on Facebook for access"),
only allowing employees / some other class).
We've also heard a number of reasons for defeating the probe - mainly "In order to show my ad I need a fully featured browser" or "In order to have people like me on Facebook their browser needs access to their cookies".
But, most of these have been anecdotal, mentioned in passing -- we'd appreciate it if someone wold be willing to take this on as a document.
It would be great if the slide deck also asked marketing, end-users, operators, implementors, computer programmers, etc to participate and contribute to this document / discussions....
I'm thinking of something that could be done as a quick talk at another
conference, such as a pycon or XYZ User Group. Or maybe a Youtube video a la
Yup, as above.
I'll probably take a cut at this, but it will only help if we it looks good,
and I'm not in that category.
Having seen many IETF presentations, I suspect that most of us fall into that camp. :-)
