Some thoughts on the occasion of the NSA Linux release

Author: JT Smith

From Linux Journal: "There are two things I am sure of after all these years: there is a growing societal need for high assurance software, and market forces are never going to provide it.
Superficially, I'm going to offer a few comments on the technology underlying the NSA release. My real intent is to induce the Open Source community into building on
this release--so when society wakes up to the fact that this stuff is really, truly needed, something is actually there. You won't get rich working on high assurance
technology, but you may end up feeling pretty good about how you spent your career."
