WS146: Decrypting Sextortion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Sextortion is based on nonconsensual pornography and refers to sexually explicit images and videos disclosed without consent and for no legitimate purpose. Involves footage obtained by hidden cameras, consensually exchanged images within a confidential relationship, stolen or leaked photos and recordings, social media manipulation, blackmailing, threating communications, computer hacking, use of malware and key loggers. It is a violation of privacy and a form of often gendered sexual abuse from objections based on negative perceptions of nudity or displays of sexual conduct.

The current architecture of internet and social media enabling these increased forms of exposure can create a world where people are more vulnerable to harm. These vulnerabilities leads to scalability, replicability and searchability of private information. Although existing privacy-preserving mechanisms have been developed and improved over the years, they are still not helping users in distinguishing a self disclosure behavior that might put them into risk.

Considering the internet’s role as a forum for public discourse, it is clearly undisputed that cyber harassment, such as sextortion, interferes with expression, even as it is perpetrated via expression. Given that it is profoundly damaging to the free speech and privacy rights of the people targeted. Accordingly, sextortion is a growing concern and needs a coordinated multi-stakeholder efforts to bring about greater levels of internet safety.

In this IGF workshop, we aim to disrupt the sextortion dialogue by implementing solutions that stems from interdisciplinary research, analysis of evidence based policy and effective multi-stakeholder good practices in tackling the problem. Seeking to bring together and engage technologists, civil society, public policymakers, government affairs, representatives from internet intermediaries to brainstorm over alternate technological focused projects and legal and policy solutions for countering sextortion which will be addressed during our social engineering demostration and panel discussion.

The following questions will be triggering debate in this workshop:

Technical & Behavioral track:

To what extent social engineering, webcam blackmail or other technical application can be instrumental to sextortion?

What is online self-disclosure and how is related to sextortion?

What make users disclose more online than in offline context?

What can be done to prevent excessive self-disclosure behavior?

What are the challenges and opportunities of using preventative technology to deal with certain forms of harmful content?

What are the challenges and opportunities of using instructional awareness approach in relation to online behavior that may create vulnerabilities?

Legal & Policy track:

What are the reasonable expectations of privacy users have in social media?

Are individuals’ difficulty expressing themselves in the face of online assaults absent from discussions about the Internet’s speech-facilitating role?

What are the challenges and opportunities around the criminalization nonconsensual pornography?

In relation to terms of services what are the expected due diligence standards with regard to privacy, due process and adjudication?

Which online platforms good practices based on content monitoring and take down tools should be boosted to tackle sextortion?

Is there any specific good practice in relation to  the youth?
