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. http://www.civilwarhome.com/population1860.htm
