Submission + - Bill to give President control of the Internet

Attila Dimedici writes: Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va) has introduced a revised bill to give the President the authority to seize control of private sector networks during a "cybersecurity emergency". The bill also contains provisions to create a new federal certification for "cybersecurity professionals". The bill would require that certain private sector computer systems and networks be managed by someone with this new certification.

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
