Fact File: See How The Seven Keys Of The Internet Work - Naijatechguy by NaijaTechGuy(m): 6:12am On Mar 18, 2017
It may sound like a scene from a Hollywood movie but it's true. Seven people from all over the world hold the keys to worldwide internet security. Here's how the keys work -



Each of the keys access a safety deposit box, which in turn holds a smartcard, which combines with every other smartcard to generate a master key. That master key controls one of the internet's central security measures known as the domain-name system, or DNS. DNS is what makes it possible for you to enter a web address, like http://www.google.com, instead of typing in the IP address, such as http://74.125.24.72.

The keyholders make sure that each web address is authentic. If they don't exist, millions of fake web addresses could send people to fake and dangerous sites.


The master key can reconstruct the entire system if there's a disaster.
The question remains though -How does a person gain this much power? Just an online application.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann), the private US company that runs the system, only received 40 applications in their initial job posting for 21 positions. The criteria for choosing each keyholder was for their experience -
all have very long careers in internet security and also for their location, since there are limits on the number of keyholders any one country can have.
Here's the part that you'll definitely love if you're a techie:

Anytime the group has a meeting they undergo extreme security measures: they have to walk through two doors require a smart card, a pin code, and a hand scan in various sequences, then a third door that uses an iris scanner.


There's no limit to how long one keyholder can serve, and in the time the group has existed, only one has resigned.

FAKE!!!!!

The internet has no controlled structure par say. The internet is a connection of devices that are online.

The DNS have no key. These are all conspiracy theorists looking for the gullible ones to lock up in there prison fake theories without facts.

Anyone wonder why the only picture in the post is a personal one from the OP?

Ignorant Countrymen shouting 'very informative'

Lies are not informative. Not everything you see on the web is true. Even on nairaland!

Was just about to write this considering I just watched the episode a few minutes ago. Would be one heck of a coincidence if the OP did not watch the episode before getting inspiration to write on it.
