Crypto software developer Bob Crowley suggests the Open Source community may want to take a hard look at the Bush administration's draft document for the "National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace" and send some comments to the White House in the next six weeks.

    Cowley, senior v.p. of Research Triangle Software had a booth at Bob Young's Lulu Tech Circus in Raleigh, North Carolina, last weekend. The Bush cybersecurity plan hasn't received a lot of attention in the Open Source community, but Crowley suggested that it should.

    Crowley, whose company makes crypto software, isn't completely down on the Bush plan, although he suggests, like some others have, that the plan is a bit short on concrete proposals to implement. There's a lot of "shoulds" with voluntary compliance in the 65-page, 86-recommendation document, and as Crowley says, "doesn't that leave us essentially in the same position we're in?"
