Jonathan Zittrain, Co-Founder of Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society“Internet-aware devices raise deep and novel security issues, with problems that could arise months or years after purchase, or spill over to people who aren’t the purchasers. This bill deftly uses the power of the Federal procurement market, rather than direct regulation, to encourage Internet- aware device makers to employ some basic security measures in their products. This will help everyone in the marketplace, including non- governmental purchasers and the vendors themselves, since they’ll be encouraged together to take steps to secure their products.”
