The White House has released an unclassified summary of Presidential Policy Directive 20.
The Policy Directive sets out the cybersecurity authority of the National Security Agency in the United States and has raised concerns about government surveillance of the Internet.
According to the White House, PPD-20 “established principles and processes for the use of cyber operations so that cyber tools are integrated with the full array of national security tools.”
EPIC is still pursuing the release of the full document. For more information seeEPIC: Cybersecurity Privacy Practical Implications and EPIC: EPIC v. NSA (NSPD 54).
