This Week in Net: How we build stuff, privacy, security and “May the 4th”

Presented by John Graham-Cumming, João Tomé
Originally aired on 

Welcome to our weekly review of stories from our blog and other sources, covering a range of topics from product announcements, tools and features to disruptions on the Internet. João Tomé is joined by our CTO, John Graham-Cumming.

In this week's program, we go over blog posts related to how we built Network Analytics v2, which is a fundamental redesign of the backend systems that power Network Analytics. We give some “May the 4th” trends for the Star Wars fans, and go over how we are building proxy applications on top of Oxy — our modern proxy framework, developed using the Rust programming language — that must be able to handle a huge amount of traffic. There’s privacy highlights celebrating Australia’s Privacy Awareness Week 2023, speed and performance data in LATAM, a new DDoS amplification vector, Sudan Internet patterns during the ongoing conflict, and we welcome our new Chief Security Officer, Grant Bourzikas. Almost here, is our Developer Week.

At the end, we have in our new “Around NET” short segment, Derek Chamorro (based in Austin, Texas — from the Hardware Keys team), after his attendance at the RSA Conference in San Francisco.
