Obama wants to secure our digital infrastructure to the tune of $19B? How about we start by not trying to force back doors into software and infrastructure, for a grand total of $0 budget requirement, and continue by discontinuing the archaic, ridiculous, and utterly meaningless registration system for “exporting” encryption that encourages companies to avoid encryption to reduce product cost, for an additional savings over our current spend. Maybe that would both help make funds available to improve the digital security of our physical infrastructure, and make it more likely that the software used to manage our physical infrastructure is strong “out of the gate”.

(as a side note, and no idea how realistic is the effort…)
