+ - Implementing Homeland Security for Feds

Submitted by White Yeti
White Yeti (927387) writes "Federal agencies are required to implement Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). At least at NASA, this is requiring background checks and access controls just short of those required for a "Secret" clearance, for both civil servants and contractors. Even the lowliest worker bee will need the checks, a new badge, and a smart card to access their computers. The utility and cost-effectiveness of all this is debatable, though at least one fellow is glad to voice his "problems". There's really no choice, since not complying means losing computer access."
