Lieberman’s Internet ‘Kill Switch’ Bill Hits Roadblock
Throwing elbows over cyber-security legislation

July 7, 2010 - 10:40am
Full article here [link to www.federalnewsradio.com]

Late last month, officials from Cisco, IBM and Oracle sent a letter to the main sponsors of the Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act, S. 3480 — Senators Joe Lieberman (DI-Conn.) Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Tom Carper (D-Del.). The letter raised concerns about some provisions of the bill:

While well intentioned, it ultimately puts U.S. critical infrastructure at increased risk by threatening the intellectual property of American companies that create the IT that operates the vast majority of U.S. government and private-sector critical networks and systems. The unintended result may be a weakening of the domestic software and hardware industry to an extent that could, ironically, leave the U.S. more dependent upon foreign suppliers for their critical IT systems.

The letter goes on to raise specific concerns about detailed provisions of the bill. You can read the full copy of the letter here [link to www.scribd.com]

The Senators issued a forceful response — a letter addressed specifically to the heads of those companies — and it was posted right on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Web site. In the response, they refer to the concerns as “mischaracterizations” of the bill:

This legislation is informed by years of oversight by this Committee and is the result of more than a year of drafting. Our staff spent considerable time working with industry representatives – including representatives from your companies – and the bill, as reported, addresses many of the concerns your companies raised during that time…

Your input on this important legislation is important to our Committee, and both our staff and yours have invested considerable time in this process. While we find the mischaracterizations of our bill in your letter inaccurate and disappointing, we welcome further discussion and hope that we can engage in a constructive dialogue going forward.

Meanwhile, Politico’s Morning Tech is reporting that the House version of the bill is having some trouble.

I feel that Ed (TV) is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is now a moral good in this country. It's its own virtue.

Lieberman is the quinessential Israeli Knesset's Zionist Representative in a sham of a U.S. Senate whose members are nearly entirely constrained to vote pro-Israel on EVEYTHING due to their near ABSOLUTE dependence on receiving American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) PAC election campaign funds.

From the letter to the gov from IT Officials:

Another troubling provision in the bill as introduced is Section 242, which creates a “National Center for Cyber security and Communications” operated within DHS which would be
required to “assist in the identification, remediation, and mitigation of vulnerabilities to the
Federal information infrastructure and the national information infrastructure” including
“dynamic, comprehensive, and continuous situational awareness of the security status of the
national information infrastructure.” There is no existing authority for the Federal government to
have “continuous situational awareness” of the security status of private networks and this would
be impossible to achieve without the deployment of government monitoring devices on private
networks, which would also provide access to private personal and commercial data on those
networks. Establishing this capability contravenes a commitment made by President Obama in
his announcement of the appointment of a new White House Cybersecurity Coordinator: “Our
pursuit of cybersecurity will not – I repeat, will not include – monitoring private sector networks
or Internet traffic.”
