President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee: Convergence Task Force Report   [open pdf - 207KB]

The President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) Convergence Task Force (CTF) examined potential national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) implications of this indeterminate, developing public network infrastructure. The resulting information, provided in the CTF Convergence Report, is designed to enable the President and NS/EP entities to make informed recommendations to address the ability of the evolving public network (PN) to reliably support NS/EP communications requirements. Specifically, the report addresses: (1)Potential security vulnerabilities of converged networks including those of the control space;(2) The realistic possibility of widespread outages of converged networks (resulting from focused failures) and the associated implications; (3)Ongoing standards development efforts in support of NS/EP priority requirements in the converged network.
