So if Obama is part of a crowd who wishes to do this, it excuses him for going along with it? Is that what you mean? He is an innocent little lamb who shares no guilt if he pushes this through?

No. By all means these types of systems, and their history, are my forte. I'd really like to know more background on this. So far the data only shows Obma and the minions around him, and down at Homeland Security. The project was started a year ago. So far you've only mentioned Bill Gates alone... sort of like in a dark smokey room.
But that doesn't mean I'm letting Obama off the hook.
You say don't let the real people behind it off the hook, but so far I don't see you lifting the veil.
I didn't know there are a whole lot of good people left in the upper echelons of government, and above.

You have to wonder if it's a gigantic waste of tax payer's money, or there's a major ulterior motive.
I'm going to go with the latter on this one...

The only reason i have mentioned Microsoft alone is because that's what i remember from an article i read over 4 years ago, you may have a photographic memory but i don't. I can't remember the name of the system and so it's difficult to google it. Hopefully someone else will remember, i did an hour of googling and couldn't find what i was after *shrugs*.
Self-Organizing Neighborhood Wireless Mesh Networks
Community-based multi-hop wireless networks is disruptive to the current broadband Internet access paradigm, which relies on cable and DSL being deployed in individual homes. It is important because it allows free flow of information without any moderation or selective rate control. Compared to the large DSL and cable modem systems that are centrally managed, mesh networking is organic — everyone in the neighborhood contributes network resources and cooperates.
As for lifting the veil lol, sorry man but the only way it will change is if everyone stands up, and i mean everyone and protests. I do my part, do you do yours?

I do not think they can pull this off. They already do not have the ability to protect even government computer systems from hackers, how are they going to put in an infrastructure to protect against theft from this?

A couple years ago I was doing some deep research into the CIA's venture capital firm, In-Q-Tel. I had gotten down into some specific techno gadgets involved in such a MESH grid... but oh dear the file with the copy-pastes is buried DEEP in the bowels of my massive archives.
SmartMesh Managers and Motes together comprise the complete system of hardware, firmware and software required for wireless network operation, and each has robust APIs for quick development and extensive system configurability. The SmartMesh IA-500 family consists of two product lines:
SmartMesh IA-510 Industrial (I) is designed for critical monitoring and control applications. It serves a wide range of applications from renewable energy generation, such as solar and wind power, to factory machine health monitoring and building energy management.
The SmartMesh IA-510 WirelessHART® (H) is compliant to the international IEC 62591 (WirelessHART®) standard and enables industrial automation vendors to meet the rapidly growing demand for integrated WirelessHART solutions.
SmartMesh systems combine Dust Networks’ Intelligent Networking Platform and industry-leading IEEE 802.15.4 radio technology to enable our customers to deliver a wide range of innovative wireless sensing solutions and services to end users.
Organizations will spend nearly $4 Billion on Identity and Access Management (IAM) software this year to implement controls and enforce compliance. Too often, these projects fail to deliver expected results within the expected time. They fall short for two reasons:
* IAM technologies cannot provide a 360-degree view of user activity, because these systems are simply not connected to the majority of things a user touches during the workday. For example, IAM is not connected to file shares or USB ports and cannot report on which confidential files a user opened or saved. As a result of having only limited user activity data, IAM can only provide a limited report on user activity and controls.
ArcSight IdentityView is a specialized solution module, built on the ArcSight SIEM Platform, designed to enhance the value of IAM technologies. It combines the broad activity collection and correlation of SIEM with the user and role management of IAM. As a result, organizations realize the value of their IAM investment more quickly, get a complete picture of user activity, and can pass compliance audits with confidence.
ArcSight IdentityView includes:
* Pre-built connectors to leading IAM systems, to import users and roles easily
* Specialized reports for activity-based role modeling, access violations, and enterprise-wide separation-of-duties tracking
* “Unique ID” mapping to tie all of a user’s activity to a single identity
* Activity profiling to determine combinations of actions that raise a warning. For example, IdentityView can scan the activities of the last 50 terminated employees to see which actions might serve as early warnings about future at-risk employees
* Automatic watch-list creation and escalation of users to different severity levels
* Out-of-the-box rules for fraud detection, unauthorized actions, etc.
ArcSight Logger 4 collects information from any system that generates log data. It can process that information as much or as little as desired, and can produce ultra-fast searching across the data. As a result, organizations of any size can quickly detect cybercrime, automate compliance reporting and streamline IT operations.
As consumers become more comfortable with online financial services, the sheer number of transactions and amount of money handled via the internet has exploded. This has brought an equally large boom in online fraud. Today’s online banking customer faces financial risk from bots, viruses, hackers and phishers. In fact, growth in fraud may derail online financial services if widespread fraud can’t be stopped.
Gartner Group recently stated that 7.5 percent of all U.S. adults lost money to some form of financial fraud in 2008. Recent examples include:
* Bots executing “Man in the Browser” attacks to steal funds during fully-authenticated sessions
* Phishing attacks to capture authentication credentials
* Payment card number theft and illegal purchases online using stolen account numbers
ArcSight FraudView detects and prevents online fraud by evaluating and scoring financial transactions in real time. Unlike legacy fraud prevention technologies, ArcSight FraudView can correlate activity across multiple banking channels, to detect sophisticated fraud schemes that span online, ATM, telephone and bank branch activity.
ArcSight FraudView can also aggregate information from a variety of risk and fraud scoring products, to create a single, high-level risk score of any transaction, as it occurs. As a result, banks can better leverage their investments in legacy fraud detection technologies.

Network Chemistry also created and continues to maintain the Wireless Vulnerabilities and Exploits  database, which is the result of a collaborative industry effort to catalog and define exploits and vulnerabilities specifically related to the use of wireless technologies in IT networks.
The wireless security business of Network Chemistry was sold to Aruba Networks (NASDAQ: ARUN) in July 2007.
This recommendation targets not just the activities of the Federal Government, but also the activities of the Nation as a whole – including both public and private interests. The role of government is to address the safety and economic needs of its people. As a result, the White House determined that the Federal Government would take a leadership role in developing a strategy to combat these threats. The Federal Government has already done much in addressing trusted digital identities. For example, the Federal Government’s ongoing efforts to execute the Federal Identity, Credential, and Access Management (FICAM) Roadmap6 are representative of the progress made. This Strategy seeks to accelerate those activities and extend trusted digital identities beyond the Federal boundaries and into the national domain. Working in close collaboration with the private sector through eighteen critical infrastructure and key resource sectors and encompassing nearly seventy different stakeholder groups, an interagency writing team developed the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace. This writing team developed the Strategy over approximately 12 months from October 2009 to October 2010.
On August 27, 2004, President Bush signed Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors, which directs the implementation of a new standardized identity badge designed to enhance security, reduce identity fraud, and protect personal privacy.
The Federal Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) uses a security technique called Public Key Cryptography to authenticate users and data, protect the integrity of transmitted data, and ensure non-repudiation and confidentiality. Components of Federal PKI include the Federal Bridge Certification Authority and the Federal PKI Common Policy Framework.
Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM)
The goal is a consolidated approach for all government-wide identity, credential and access management activities to ensure alignment, clarity, and interoperability.
