Cybersecurity Chief Beckstrom Resigns Bad Policy, 2 let NSA play major cybersecurity role!
http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNew...E5260I620090307

QUOTE
Sat Mar 7, 2009

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. government's director for cybersecurity resigned on Friday, criticizing the excessive role of the National Security Agency in countering threats to the country's computer systems.

"He has tendered his resignation," Amy Kudwa, a Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman told Reuters.

Former Silicon Valley entrepreneur Rod Beckstrom said in a resignation letter published by the Wall Street Journal it was a "bad strategy" to have the National Security Agency, which is part of the Department of Defense, play a major role in cybersecurity.

Beckstrom headed the National Cybersecurity Center, which was created last March to coordinate all government cybersecurity efforts and answers to the Department of Homeland Security.

Homeland Security said in a statement that it has a strong relationship with the NSA and continues to work closely with all of its partners to protect the country's cyber networks.

Beckstrom wrote to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Thursday in his resignation letter that the NSA currently dominates most national cyber efforts.

"While acknowledging the critical importance of NSA to our intelligence efforts, I believe this is a bad strategy on multiple grounds," he wrote in the letter posted by the Wall Street Journal on its website.

National Security Agency officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Beckstrom said in his letter that the cybersecurity group did not receive adequate support to accomplish its role during the previous administration of President George W. Bush, which only provided the center with five weeks of funding in the last year.

His resignation will be effective March 13, the letter said.

The newspaper said the Obama administration was conducting a 60-day review of the cybersecurity program started by Bush last year to protect government networks.

Rod A. Beckstrom has resigned director of the National Cyber Security Center in the Department of Homeland Security, saying the expanding control of the NSA poses, "threats to our democratic processes."  

Government Cyber-Security Chief Resigns in Protest
NationalPolicyInstitute.org

The official in charge of coordinating the US government’s cyber-security operations has quit, saying the expanding control of the National Security Agency over the nation’s computer security efforts poses “threats to our democratic processes.”

“Even from a security standpoint, it is unwise to hand over the security of all government networks to a single organization,” said Rod A. Beckstrom, the head of the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cyber Security Center when speaking to United Press International.

“If our Founding Fathers were taking part in this debate [about the future organization of the government's cyber-security activities], there is no doubt in my mind they would support a separation of security powers among different [government] organizations, in line with their commitment to checks and balances,” he said.

In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano last week, Mr. Beckstrom said the NSA “dominates most national cyber efforts” and “effectively controls DHS cyber efforts through detailees, technology insertions and the proposed move” of the NCSC to an NSA facility at the agency’s Fort Meade, Md., headquarters.

“I believe this is a bad strategy on multiple grounds,” Mr. Beckstrom wrote in the letter, a copy of which was obtained by UPI. “The intelligence culture is very different than a network operations or security culture. In addition, threats to our democratic processes are significant if all top-level government network security and monitoring are handled by any one organization.”

Editor's Note: While Mr. Beckstrom's letter was sent just last week, his website indicates that he initially submitted his resignation request in March of this year. Whether he agreed to stay on while a search for his replacement was conducted is not known.

New CEO of ICANN is Rod Beckstrom (He was the guy who resigned from the govt cybersecurity program saying the NSA had too much of a grip on cybersecurity.):

Rod Beckstrom Named ICANN CEO

Global Entrepreneur, Analyst and Author

26 June 2009

Internet founders and leaders are joining industry executives and government officials in praising the selection of Rod Beckstrom as the new Chief Executive Officer and President of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

"Rod Beckstrom has exactly the sort of strong personal and technical background that ICANN needs, as we enter a period of unprecedented growth and change for the Internet," said ICANN's Board Chairman Peter Dengate Thrush, in announcing the appointment. "In addition to his cyber security expertise, he's been a successful CEO of a global enterprise, done NGO work and volunteer work and a bestselling author. It's an extreme understatement to say we are enthused."

Beckstrom is the former Director of the U.S. National Cybersecurity Center (NCSC), where he formed an effective working group of leaders from the nation's top six cybersecurity centers spanning the civilian, military and intelligence communities.

The announcement of Beckstrom's selection as CEO occurred at the conclusion of ICANN's 35th international meeting in Sydney, Australia.

"The importance of the Internet as a free flowing source of information is being underscored right now by the events in Iran," said Beckstrom. "It shows the power of human expression through a free and open Net."

Beckstrom's international perspectives and expertise in organizational analysis frame much of the praise surrounding his appointment as ICANN CEO:

"Rod's extensive technical and commercial expertise is world class, and I can think of no one better positioned to lead ICANN's critical mission as the Internet's role in society continues to increase in scope and importance." – Eric Schmidt, Google Chairman and CEO.

"Rod Beckstrom is strikingly well-prepared to undertake a new role as CEO of ICANN. His experience in industry and government equip him for this global and very challenging job." – Vint Cerf, considered the "Father" of the Internet.

"I am pleased that ICANN elected Rod Beckstrom to serve as its next CEO, and look forward to working with him in the years to come. He is an intelligent and thoughtful individual who will provide the right kind of leadership for the organization." – Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee.

"I can think of no one more prepared to take this role on than Rod Beckstrom." – David Dorman, Chairman of Motorola Inc.

"Rod has thought deeply about organizations and the Internet. He will bring experience, energy and ideas to a job at the center of the digital revolution." – James Lewis, Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC.

"Rod Beckstrom is an outstanding choice to head ICANN. He understands people, institutions, and technology. He can bring constituencies together and has inspired important collaborations around the world. He recognizes both the potential and the challenges for ICANN. And has stood up for the civil liberties of Internet users with courage and foresight." – Marc Rotenberg, Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)

"Rod Beckstrom's unique blend of experience as a high-tech entrepreneur, public servant and leading international thinker are just what ICANN needs as it enters the next phase of its development. VeriSign looks forward to working with Mr. Beckstrom and his staff as they tackle the issues critical to the Internet community and Internet users." – Mark McLaughlin, President and Chief Operating Officer of VeriSign.

"I'd liked to extend my congratulations to Mr. Beckstrom for his appointment as President and CEO of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). His background as an Internet entrepreneur and in cyber security will be an asset for ICANN as it continues to promote competition and enhance the stability and security of the global Internet. I look forward to working with him, as we continue our efforts to make ICANN a more stable, accountable, transparent, and, most importantly, fully independent global organization." – U.S. Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine).

Beckstrom has been an active participant in the non-profit arena, serving on the board of trustees of the Environmental Defense Fund and the Jamii Bora Trust, a micro-lending group based in Nairobi, Kenya with more than 210,000 members.

A co-author of four books, Beckstrom's most recent, The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations, details how diverse and untraditional organizations, can become virtually selfperpetuating, regardless of the status of their respective leadership.

"The Internet has changed the way the world communicates and conducts commerce," said Beckstrom. "And in no small way, this multi-stakeholder, bottom-up organization has been and will continue to be at the core of the Internet's on-going evolution. Quite simply, the proof that ICANN works, is that the Internet works."

About ICANN:

To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer - a name or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. Without that coordination we wouldn't have one global Internet. ICANN was formed in 1998. It is a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with participants from all over the world dedicated to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It promotes competition and develops policy on the Internet's unique identifiers. ICANN doesn't control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam and it doesn't deal with access to the Internet. But through its coordination role of the Internet's naming system, it does have an important impact on the expansion and evolution of the Internet.

So, was this for the purpose of making him look like a good guy, but really the plan all along so he could head up ICANN? These people do pull stunts all of the time.

People creating Alternate DNS Routes to avoid this new stuff the gov and ICANN are setting up. It would be like a UPS of the Internet, avoiding the main Post Office (analogy).

He said there are two parts to the internet, public (the roads) and private (the address system)

He suggested doing a search on "Alternate DNS Route".

Obama FCC to attempt government takeover of the Internet
http://dailycaller.com/2010/05/07/obama-fc...f-the-internet/


QUOTE
By The Daily Caller 05/07/10

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again — and with a more “diplomatic” approach. That’s the strategy the Federal Communications Commission, which detailed its plans to regulate the Internet via a “third way.”

The FCC’s new, ostensibly softer approach comes on the heels of a U.S. Court of Appeals decision earlier this month, which ruled that the FCC does not have the authority to directly regulate internet providers nor require them to offer equal treatment to all Web traffic. Comcast sued the FCC, arguing that the commission could not force the company to be “net neutral” in regards to the file-sharing program BitTorrent, which Comcast at one point was filtering on its system.

In response, FCC chairman Julius Genachowski announced the “third way” which consists of simply removing ISPs from their current classification in order to “have enough of a legal footing in place to make sure the agency can protect consumers and achieve goals presented in the National Broadband Plan.”

Currently, the FCC categorizes Internet Service Providers (ISPs) as Title 1 “information service.” The classification meant that the FCC lacked the direct authority to regulate these providers. The FCC’s other option, however was to classify ISPs as Title II “telecommunications service,” which internet providers say would bring with it regulatory madness and  the same red tape that wireline phone agencies find themselves in.

Genachowski’s “third way” then will be an attempt to run between the two classifications:

The chairman will seek to restore the status quo as it existed prior to the court decision in order to fulfill the previously stated agenda of extending broadband to all Americans, protecting consumers, ensuring fair competition, and preserving a free and open Internet,” the official said.

The confirmation from the FCC comes only hours after two senior Democratic politicians sent a letter to Genachowski saying that imposing Net neutrality regulations on broadband providers such as AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon is “essential.” And Free Press, the liberal lobby group that’s led the fight to hand the FCC more Internet regulatory authority, hastily convened a conference call to warn that Genachowski would be leaving President Obama’s Net neutrality promises unfulfilled.

Net neutrality proponents have bemoaned the recent Appeals Court decision and wish to see a “free and open internet.”  But those opposed to interference from the FCC have argued that regulation will only suffocate business and innovation in an area that has thrived without government interference.

Yesterday, one FCC official said Genacoswki was trying to have it both ways, hoping:

to balance “a weak Title I and a needlessly burdensome Title II approach.” Title I refers to lightly regulated information services; Title II refers to heavily regulated telecommunications services, such as legacy telephone networks.

The balancing act between what the FCC has been told it cannot do and what it wants to do, has caused the committee to run over itself more than once. As BetaNews reports:

“The Third Way,” as the FCC now calls it, is a clear effort to defer to US Supreme Court decisions that suggested the FCC has the authority to declare what it does not regulate. As a model for deciding what’s in and what’s out, Schlick refers to the classic dissent of Justice Antonin Scalia in the 2005 Brand X decision. There, Justice Scalia argued that since it doesn’t make much difference to the customer whether he receives service through one route or another, it shouldn’t make much difference to the law, either.

Dancing lightly over the fact that Scalia’s argument was a dissent from the decision, and not actual law, Schlick suggested this morning that the FCC should now embrace an approach that it had vehemently rejected just weeks earlier.

Currently, the “third way” contains only six provisions from Title II regulations, although “the FCC could decide it needs more or less as this process wears on,” according to Engadget.com.

Republicans in Washington rejected the “third way” characterization and accused the Obama Administration of once again seeking to expand the power of government over the private sector.  House Republican Leader John Boehner of Ohio said, “Under this job- killing big government scheme, the Obama administration is seeking to expand the power of the federal government.”

Republican FCC Commissioners Rob McDowell and Meredith Attwell Baker issued a joint statement, saying: “This dramatic step to regulate the Internet is unnecessary.”

“It is a stark departure from the long-established bipartisan framework,” they said.

IMO, the people need to unelect these Dinosaurs like Rockefeller in the Senate who don't even know how to use the internet, yet keep telling us it should be regulated, controlled, interfered with, etc. What an idiot!

Rockefeller, it's time for you to resign! You're not thinking clearly these days, if ever! You should be listening to your kids who reject your antiquated ideas about the internet. Oh, and take your little MAINE groupies (Collins & Snow) with you.


Listen to Rockefeller talk about something he knows nothing about:
http://z4.invisionfree.com/The_Great_Decep...?showtopic=6347

If he were to tell the truth (wishful thinking), the reason he is pissed is because his family has been exposed majorly on the internet. He doesn't like that! However, I must say some of his kids seem to have more sense on the internet issue.

Both Republicans and Democrats & the FCC need to keep their hands off the internet! However, if they see the cable companies doing things they shouldn't, then they should be called out for it. They have no right to block content or control what people see.

ALL OF YOU GUYS NEED TO GROW UP AND START ACTING RESPONSIBLY ON SO MANY ISSUES! CAN THE ADULTS RETURN TO ALL OF THESE POSITIONS PLEASE? I'M TIRED OF CHILDREN RUNNING THINGS!

Oh yeah, all the boyz are coming out with their Cybersecurity scams and talk right on time to push passage of the bill Rockefeller introduced YET AGAIN and has been attempting to railroad through Congress since at least 2009. Oh, now we have more contrived cyber attacks that will attempt to manipulate idiots in Congress to support:

When stars align, you know it's manipulation and joint cooperation among thugs with agendas! You see, they were not able to railroad this through in 2009 and all the other previous multiple attempts, so they have to fearmonger the people even more to get it done!

Congress, find your spine, and stop all this manipulation, or get out of the way so a real man or woman can STAND UP!
