Secure Federal File Sharing Act Reforming P2P Networks

Secure Federal File Sharing Act Reforming P2P Networks

The crucial step forward the fighting to reform peer-to-peer software will be taken in the near future when the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform marks up the "Secure Federal File Sharing Act." The bill, introduced in last November, is targeted to ban the recreational use of peer-to-peer software on all Federal computers, systems and networks including those that belong to government contractors. The law would also demand the Office of Management and Budget approving legal uses of such software on a case-by-case basis on Federal computers and providing Congress a report on agencies using peer-to-peer software and the list of its purposes annually.

The Committee began scrutinizing the dangers posed by P2P software nearly a decade ago. At that time peer-to-peer networks were new and offered both promises and dangers. Since then there happened a number of security breaches resulting from sensitive data leaks through P2P. Only during the last year the data concerning the electronic wiring for Obama's helicopter leaked to Iran; financial data from Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, plans for Obama's motorcade route, the First Family's safe house location found on open peer-to-peer networks. All those incidents prompted the Committee to continue its investigation into the P2P software dangers.

And what were the results? Unsurprisingly, they succeeded in easily finding copyrighted movies and music, medical records, Federal tax returns and other sensitive data on P2P, including confidential information about US troops and military programs. Some time later secret information concerning House Ethics Committee investigation was found shared through P2P. A Committee member downloaded sensitive Committee documents from home on personal computer containing P2P software and therefore exposed it.

Such line of security breaches drew attention and emphasized the need for legal action to reform P2P software. Until now the government has allowed developers of P2P software to regulate themselves, but now it thinks they’ve failed to secure the programs.

It’s not just about copyright infringement now, but about security of the state. The government has no doubt that providing it’s used legally to share not copyrighted files, peer-to-peer technology has a great potential. But now the action is required to protect the Americans from a future attack.

Log2 avatarAmerican's are so stupid... well not all of them, but they're government is for sure. When 1 person makes a mistake they blame it on the nation!!! It's not the nations fault that p2p was invented and that stupid people don't know how to use it properly. In fact, these government "officials" should have a private folder they store government related files in on their own computers anyway, a folder that is encrypted to some degree. Otherwise it's accessible to any hacker anyway.. so if someone really wanted the plans to anything, I'm sure they could still get it

But thanks for the article, good read

Absolutely, and they usually already work for the FBI having access to the very files there 'Trying to protect'... Ask Kevin David Mitnick, he can tell you right now from his consulting firm about his current involvement with the US F.B.I - Cyber Crime and Prevention Division.

and i can assure you, from my own experience, its only a matter of reason and money to whom that information is protected for.

Security Via Obscurity, Every businesses first and last line of defense
