【要求撤回電話智能卡實名登記制度聲明】

政府於2021年1月30日建議透過《電訊條例》訂立規例實施電話智能卡實名登記制度,並展開公眾諮詢。我們認為實名制不但沒法打擊罪案,甚至會阻礙科研發展。理由如下:

  1. 建議數量對需要進行開發及測試應用程式的前線員工極為不便、條文沒有清晰界定機器對機器 (M2M) 連接電話卡在實名制外, 官僚制度使中小企無所適從
  2. 實名制不能阻止利用境外電話假冒成本地電話的犯案、亦會增加不法份子透過偷竊及威嚇手段盜用市民電話卡的可能性,巿民或會因此成為代罪羔羊
  3. 建議沒有釐清迫切或緊急之定義,導致執法部門權力過大
  4. 聯合國人權高級專員辦事處一份2015年的報告已指出,言論自由需要有足夠的加密法及匿名權才有足夠的保障,報告建議世界各地應該盡可能避免實名制
  5. 實名制使電訊商收集及儲存更多個人資料,但香港現階段沒有足夠成熟的私隱政策保障市民的應有的權利

因此我們要求撤回修例並呼籲業界從業員在諮詢期內提交意見。

HONG KONG INTERNET GOVERNANCE FORUM (HKIGF) ROUNDTABLE: Is the National Security Law Hong Kong’s Great Firewall? 香港互聯網管治論壇: 網絡長城——港版國安法與網絡自由

Register: https://forms.gle/naBTUjQdiNf9CNL37

Hong Kong Internet Governance Forum: Is the National Security Law Hong Kong’s Great Firewall?

  • Date: 18 NOV
  • Time: 7pm – 9pm 
  • Venue: ZOOM
  • Language: English

On July 1, Hong Kong’s sweeping new national security law came into effect. Though the law doesn’t target the technology sector per se, Article 9 stipulates that the Hong Kong government “shall employ necessary measures to strengthen publicity, guidance, oversight and management in schools, social organizations, media, networks and other matters related to national security,” with “networks” here referring to the internet.

Though it still seems unclear how the law may practically be carried out, we can already see such a chilling effect. Facebook, Google and Twitter suspended user info requests from the Hong Kong government, some VPN firms shut down Hong Kong servers, the mobile app ‘Eat With You’ which labels local eateries supportive of the Hong Kong protesters terminated its service. Not to mention some residents have started to delete their Twitter accounts and messages over security law concerns. 

Speakers:

※Antony Dapiran – Hong Kong-based writer and lawyer, author of the book ‘City on Fire: The Fight for Hong Kong’

※Ho Wa Wong – Founder of g0vhk

※Edwin Chu – Co-founder of Enyk Security

※Sharron Fast – Lecturer at the University of Hong Kong’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre (JMSC)

※Charles Mok – Legislative Councillor (Information Technology)

In this Webinar, we have invited experts from different aspects to talk about how the security will affect Hong Kong citizens’ online activities, as well as how it may affect tech entrepreneurs and larger companies as they go about their day-to-day operations and long-term plans. And how can the tech civil society deal with this situation.

[Webinar] Data for Environment: From Insight to Action

Prof. Rolien Hoyng, School of Journalism and Communication, CUHK and the Internet Society Hong Kong are organising Data for Environment: From Insight to Action. We invite you to join our webinar discussing the role of data in tackling the environmental problems that cities like Hong Kong are facing.

The event explores how better access to, and use of, data can contribute to social innovation and awareness of environmental threats such as pollution and waste. What kinds of data would be necessary and what can be done with them? What can Open Data mean for stakeholders such as environmental NGOs and how can they push for it? 

Date: 23 October, 2020 (Friday)

Time: 15:30 – 17:30

Venue: Online meeting room

Registration: https://forms.gle/KwvSe8KFvBUptDRd6

Speaker: 

  • Prof. Daisy Tam, Department of Humanities and Creative Writing, HKBU

Prof. Tam will talk about her research journey in food waste and her web application Breadline (by HKFoodWorks) which uses data to decentralise food rescue operations. 

  • Prof. Wilson Lu, Department of Real Estate and Construction, HKU

How much construction waste is being dumped illegally in Hong Kong’s countryside? Prof. Lu is going to tell us about his research project that dug out the truth using data mining and modelling. 

  • Mr. Wendell Chan, Project Officer of Friends of the Earth

How “green” are LegCo and District Councils? Friends of the Earth looks into the meeting minutes, attendance and voting record of council members to find out how committed they are to environmental issues. 

  • Dr. Scott Edmunds, CivicSight (formerly Open Data Hong Kong) & CitizenScience.Asia

There are not many publicly available academic and government data in Hong Kong. That was why Dr. Edmunds mobilised the power of citizen-collected data in his crowdsourced mosquito detection projects and in understanding other environmental issues.

什麽是「路由安全共同協議規範」Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS)?

路由系統是全球網絡基礎設施的重要一部分;不良分子可以透過騎劫路由器 (route hijacking)、路由洩漏 (route leaks)、欺騙網絡協定地址 (IP Address spoofing)等發起分散式阻斷服務攻擊 (DDOS) 及其他攻擊網絡服務的手段。因此,路由系統的保安和韌性(reslience) 至關重要。互聯網協會 (ISOC) 推動的「路由安全共同協議規範」(Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security,MANRS)計劃,正是為常見的路由威脅提供關鍵修復,維護互聯網的穩定和安全。

這項計劃促進網絡運營商(ISP)、互聯網交換點(IXP)、內容交付網絡(CDN)和雲端供應商的及時通信和協調,並鼓勵他們發布和分享路由數據。參加的運營商亦要同意防止傳播錯誤的路由信息​​,以及截停帶有欺騙性源頭的IP地址流量。更重要的是,這個計劃鼓勵網絡營運商承諾和承擔維護路由系統的保安和韌性的責任;同時,透過更多支持者的加入,擴大這個安全規範的影響力。

大家可以在此查閲到MANRS參加者名單: https://www.manrs.org/isps/participants/ 大部分服務香港的網絡運營商,均提供跨區域性服務。MANRS參加者名單上列出了8 間服務香港的網絡運營商;其中有兩間運營商: Anexia 以及RETN 達到MANRS全部4項服務要求目標,分別是防止錯誤的路由信息傳播 (filtering);防止IP地址欺騙 (anti-spoofing);改善網絡之間的協調 (coordination);路由信息驗證 (global validation)。
