ABSTRACT

Network Group Report (1998)   [open pdf - 196KB]

Since the last meeting of the President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) in December 1997, the Network Group (NG) has directed its efforts to five activities. Two of these activities involve the NG's ongoing responsibilities: facilitating the exchange of network security research and development (R&D) information between Government and industry and overseeing the NSTAC Network Security Information Exchange (NSIE). Discussions at NSTAC XX resulted in two additional activities: examining how national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) operations might be affected by a severe disruption of Internet service and clarifying the findings in the Widespread Outage Subgroup's (WOS) report to NSTAC XX. The NG initiated a fifth activity- a review of the status of efforts to prepare the telecommunications infrastructure for the millennium change- in response to a request from the Manager, National Communications System.
