U.S. Lays Out Priorities for Future of Cyberspace

By REUTERS,May 16, 2011


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States launched a new initiative Monday designed to stamp the Internet with U.S. values such as freedom of expression, saying cyberspace must remain open, secure and reliable.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a host of other senior government officials unveiled a new national strategy on cyberspace that seeks to enshrine open international standards for the Internet while protecting network security and strengthening law enforcement.

"There is no one-size-fits-all, straightforward route to this goal. We have to build a global consensus about a shared vision for cyberspace," Clinton said.

The new strategy codifies the Obama administration's aggressive attempts to define the future of the Internet in the face of competing models such as that promoted by China, which practices greater control.
