Computer Security Bill Approved by House

The U.S. House of Representatives on Nov. 27, 2001 approved
H.R.1259, the Computer Security Enhancement Act. The legislation
would put the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
in charge of assisting federal agencies in protecting their computer
networks. It would require NIST to promote federal compliance with
computer information security and privacy guidelines, and assist in
the federal response to unauthorized access to federal computer
systems. In addition, the bill authorizes appropriations to fund
fellowships for students in the field of computer security. The bill
has no direct implications for Internet freedom, and its prospects
in the Senate are uncertain, but its passage by the House
represents the start of Congressional efforts to boost computer
security in the wake of September 11. November 29, 2001
