Mr Cerf, known as one of the fathers of the internet, acknowledges that he and co-founder Bob Kahn didn’t think enough about security when they built the framework for the web. He shares a view held by a growing number of experts that the best way to defend against cyberattacks might be to simply start again, with “Internet 2”.
