The Decentralised Web (DW) has recently seen a renewed momentum, with a number of DW platforms like Mastodon and PeerTube gaining increasing traction. These offer alternatives to traditional ‘centralised’ social networks like Twitter and YouTube by enabling the operation of web infrastructure and services without centralised ownership or control. They do, however, raise a number of key challenges related to performance, security and resilience. In this seminar, I will present a measurement study of the DW, and discuss our empirical exploration of some of the key challenges in this area. The presentation is based on a ACM Internet Measurement Conference 2019.

This talk is part of the Computer Laboratory Security Seminar series.
