Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

Who should have control of the Internet? Last month's United Nations meeting in Geneva saw the United States pitched against the EU as well as old foes China, Iran and Cuba in a fight for overall control of the Internet.

Stalking the corridors in Geneva last month, Kieren McCarthy collared the great and good at the heart of the issue. Here then is his two-part report featuring clips from the actual session as well as exclusive interviews with the US Ambassador David Gross, UK/EU representative David Hendon, UN special advisor Nitin Desai, Brazilian Ambassador Antonino Porto and CEO of ICANN Paul Twomey.
