Senate Bill 773: Cybersecurity Act of 2009 addresses the development of a ‘Secure Domain Name Addressing System’ which calls for several U.S. agencies to collaborate, implement and require U.S. businesses to use a ‘Secure Domain Addressing System’. This addressing system will be maintained by VirnetX using its patented proprietary ‘Secure Domain Name Registry’.
VirnetX is an internet holding corporation that is looking to develop ‘secure’ real time communication over their virtual private network (VPN). By creating it’s own ‘secure’ domain registry they can sell to their customers channels in which they can have seamless zero click or one click communication using multiple devices. VirnetX is ready to develop a secure peer-to-peer network using its ‘GABRIEL Connection Technology’. VirnetX CEO Kendall Larsen said about the current domain name system:
“The current Domain Name System, the basis by which we find and communicate with people or companies over the Internet, is broken and wide open to cyberattacks. The current methods for dealing with these attacks are temporary fixes at best. Until we secure the Internet at a foundational level, people and businesses will be vulnerable and preyed upon. Our patented technology derived from a U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY initiative, provides the necessary foundational measures to make the Internet a safe and trusted environment.”
After digesting all of this information and researching who is behind it all, this looks to me like the U.S. Gov’t and U.S Corporations are trying to force U.S. businesses use their domain registry in the name of ‘Cyber Security’. Senate Bill 773 which has not reached congress yet, was introduced by none other than Senator John Rockefeller and guess who co-sponsored this bill? Remember Olympia Snowe? A favorite amongst domainers. Section 9 of the bill calls for the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to have a strategy ready for implementation of the ‘Secure Domain Addressing System’ within three years of the bills enactment.
How the hell they plan on implementing and enforcing this kind of change, I have no clue. However they have the financial and political backing to try. ‘Security’ it’s all about ‘Security’ and by U.S. businesses using this ‘Secure Domain Addressing System’ will all of the sudden be sheltered and ‘Secure’ from cyber attacks? That is the claim VirnetX is making, and they have a political agenda in the works to make it mandatory for U.S. businesses to use their services.
