Submission + - NSA chief wants separate Internet for government (thehill.com)

GovTechGuy writes: NSA chief Keith Alexander, also the head of the U.S. Cyber Command told reporter that he would like to see the creation of a secure zone on the Internet for government and critical private sector industries such as utility companies and the financial sector. Alexander has repeatedly emphasized the dramatic nature of the cyber threat facing American networks and his comments were a further sign that the Pentagon does not think the war against foreign hackers can be won. Alexander denied the military has any role in safeguarding civilian networks currently, but didn't rule out the option in the future.
