The White House hosted a closed-door meeting with a number of tech luminaries and executives on Thursday to talk about privacy issues.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, and Vint Cerf (the co-inventor of TCP/IP) were reported to be in attendance, according to Politico.

This was the second high-level meeting held this week between the Obama Administration, tech companies, and civil liberties groups—however this time, the president himself was apparently present.

For now, everyone seems to be staying mum about what actually transpired. “I am sure there are many curious minds, but this was off the record,” Cerf told Ars.
