The official document should be posted on WhiteHouse.GOV later today. An
almost final draft copy was leaked on the net yesterday.
DNSSEC and S-BGP have been mentioned as possible solutions. Technically
some of the proposals are very elegant. However, we have to be careful
about introducing more complexity into the system than necessary. Over
the last year we've seen several errors in the implementation several
security protocols. I don't believe security people are any better
programmers than application people. What I worry about more is we are
developing extremely secure, and complex methods for protecting garbage.
