SANS - Survey on application security programs

If you ever thought that the political shenanigans of the self-appointed guardians of the Internet, the ICANN "directors", should be made into a play or sitcom, you'll be delighted to see this cartoon that a Reg reader has just pointed us to.

It's a bit low-tech and obviously a first try but still worth a peek if you know about ICANN and fancy a laugh. In it, Karl Auerbach is a crusader figure trying to take on the might of Vint Cerf, Louis Touton et al who are trying to take over the world and make as much money from the Net as possible - see how reality is cleverly fused with cartoon other-worldliness? :-)

Jon Postel arrives as a spiritual guide and the rebel alliance attempts to disrupt the evil conspiracy by, well, pointing out that root servers are not some mystical device that need some old techie-come-egotists to look after them. And at the end, the Scooby Doo team turn up for an unmasking of the evil Sclavos.

Who is it? You'll have to watch. But try to think of someone who seems to think he can wear four different hats with conflicting interests without there being any, er, conflicting interests.

Sadly, if you don't know about the ins and outs of ICANN it won't make much sense to you. Plus, dare we say it, it could do with a little trimming and tightening. Nevertheless, hats off.

Here it is. ®
