U.S. National Plan for Protecting Cyberspace

Related News I read an article today that poses questions in my mind that I think we should all be concerned about.

'But the government may soon be doing more than that. As Clarke prepares to
release on Sept. 18 the National Plan for Protecting Cyberspace, he may also
expand to all federal agencies a new U.S. Department of Defense policy that
requires all new IT purchases to be made from a list of independently
certified product lines.'

It is statements like this that have me worried.

Just what Independent Certified Product Lines are we talking about here?
If this comes to pass, how will it effect the Open Source community?

I understand this it an American issue, but like the DMCA, it will have an
effect on all of us.

Yep good old Uncle Sam is at it again, but i dont think it will be all bad news, I have a funny feeling that if one actually saw the delegates list to the mentioned
security conference there is a chance that OSS was probably represented in some way by the delegates themselves

But you are right only time and disclosure will tell
what this really means...
