Re: Networking Architecture Must Change
Why is it that not a lot of people still know about this "Dark Web". It's such an interesting and intriguing phenomenon. I mean, talking about there are plenty of opportunities for hacking and dodgy underground activity using the internet, I'm sure that there are lots of people who are interested to know how things like this would work, even if they didn't want to get involved...

Networking Architecture Must Change
One of the problems networking security faces is the static and pseudo-static nature of business networks.  That is, the technology is not yet in place that can introduce some intelligent chaos into the network topology these targeted businesses access.   Imagine a network that shifts its entire topology randomly, in a way that cannot be predicted.  We put so much energy into the study of AI and machine learning, yet do not seem to put the same energy into networking research to create technology that would render much of the tools and methods used by the worst of the actors out there useless; we plug holes but do not completely re-design the dike.  Each advancement in AI, for instance, could be turned to the research of super-secure networking technologies.  It may sound like pie-in-the-sky but the future of the Internet has to include some element of super-ad-hoc topology.  Examples of existing technologies that have algorithms which contain elements of this future tech include load balancers and some topology management heuristics where MDS and CDS elections are managed in an ad-hoc fashion.  Revolving hosts, dynamic routes, and keyed access points based on equations held only by physical token generators, etc.  Full and partial mesh networks, for instance, joined with AI and new Internet standards may be the starting point.  Scanning the Dark Web and seeing these available services for targeted hits is a reminder we are still in the Dark Ages of the Internet.
