President calls for national strategy on Cyberattacks

According to an article reported today in the Washington Post, President Bush has signed National Security Presidental Directive 16, calling for the creation of a national strategy for when and how to deploy cyber-warfare.

The directive was aparently signed in July, but was only disclosed recently. Perhaps it is a coincindence that this information comes to light just as former hacker Kevin Mitnick is allowed to use computers again.
