In this paper, the authors argue that the potential for man-in-the-middle attacks on third-party software is a significant threat to Free and Open Communications on the Internet (FOCI). The FOCI community has many challenges ahead, from the failure of the SSL system to protect Internet users from states that control the internet to the challenges inherent in measuring and cataloging internet censorship. It is already well-known in the community that man-in-the-middle attacks are a threat, and such attacks are already being used by nation states.
