Internet Illuminati: 7 Key Holders of the Web

The whole Internet is controlled by seven actual, physical keys.

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers also known as the ICANN, can do anything. They map your IP address to your domain name. If you controlled the ICANN you would essentially control the internet landscape. Basically you could rewire sites to yourself, even a legitimate bank!

Each key has a back-up and the keys are in the possession of fourteen select individuals. These keys unlock safety deposit boxes scattered across the globe which have smartcards in them. The smartcards need to be put together to form a master key. The chosen few gather four times a year since 2010 to generate a new master key. Sounds like Illuminati to me...
