NSA to take over Federal network intrusion work

The Washington Post is reporting today (on page A3 sadly) on HSPD-23. This is apparently classified (so leaked by someone) and reflects the role that the intelligence community will play in watching the overall federal threat. While it’s good to have smart people working on these things (the Intelligence community has some of the brightest people working on analysis), there’s a lot of industry or trade secrets that are held in the private sector that are as important or more important to protect. We’ll see if there is room for partnership with the private sector or if all the work done will be classified.
