This Week in Net: One year of war in Ukraine, Fediverse on Cloudflare and Chief Zero Trust Officer

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

Welcome to our weekly review of stories from our blog and other elsewhere, 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 discuss one year of war in Ukraine and the related Internet trends, cyber attacks, and resilience of the country. We go over Wildebeest, an open-source, easy-to-deploy ActivityPub and Mastodon-compatible server built entirely on top of Cloudflare's Supercloud. We also give some attention to DDoS attacks given that Cloudflare mitigated a record-breaking 71 million request-per-second DDoS attack. There’s also time to talk about Zero Trust and how the Chief Zero Trust Officer could be a new role for a new era of cybersecurity. Last but not least, some highlights on a deep dive on a replacement in Rust for one of the oldest and least-well understood parts of the Cloudflare infrastructure, cf-html.
