NSA Refuses To Release Secret Obama Directive On Cybersecurity

Order may allow military takeover of internet

The National Security Agency has refused to release details of a secret presidential directive which experts believe could allow the military and intelligence agencies to operate on the networks of private companies, such as Google and Facebook.

As we reported last week, an article in the Washington Post, cited several US officials saying that Obama signed off on the secret cybersecurity order, believed to widely expand NSA’s spying authorities, in mid-October.

It's time for an all new IPv6 network apart from ARIN, RIPE, etc



Get rid of them!

What I am talking about is machine routing, mesh/bgp routing (every device becomes an alternate route for other devices within range, and functions as its own router too) managed by clusters of PCs, smart phones and any other application based computer controlled device using multi-NIC virtualization piggy backing off of one physical hardware NIC (Network Interface Controller).

Screw AT&T, Verizon, T-mobile, Sprint, Comcast and all the other dinosaur copper, fiber, coax telcos.

They should be coming to us and begging us to route their corporate network traffic across our home grown wireless networks.

With WhiteSpace WIFI 802.22 and the legacy 802.11 there is no reason why the Internet can not be taken offline by people who want to network with each other and connect the world apart from a monthly charge to a big telco.
