53 Questions for Developing the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace

http://www.whitehouse.gov/pcipb/53ques.html

1.2. Assistance: What can be done to make it easier for home users and
small businesses to safe guard their systems? Should internet service
providers (ISPs) perform more of the cybersecurity functions for the home
user and small business?

1.3. Disclosure: What disclosure of risk should ISPs, software vendors,
and hardware vendors make to home users and small businesses?

3.A.5. Connecting Critical Functions to the Internet: How should we best
address the security risks arising from critical Federal functions being
performed on networks that have routers and other systems vulnerable to
denial of service and other cyber attacks from the internet?

3.B.6. Connecting Critical Functions to the Internet: Are there sectors
that perform critical functions which could achieve greater security and
reliability by operating networks unconnected to the internet and other
public switch, open systems?

4.3. Securing the Mechanics of the Internet: Can the traffic control
systems of the internet (Domain Name Servers, Border Gateway Protocols) be
made more secure? Can routers be made more secure by separating control
functions from the general traffic channel? How can major denial of
service attacks be mitigated? What problems arise in deploying more secure
systems, how should they be overcome, and how should such improvements be
funded?
