Dark Cloud Computing

In his blog article “The Rise of The Dark Cloud” Reuven Cohen wonders about a growing interest in covert computing. Although he briefly mentions malevolent uses of the net, the focus seems to be on a more active stance by corporations and governments to protect the Internet by covertly pooling resources in the form of a dark cloud or cloud alliance. The members would have a benevolent mission with an ability to counter or block network threats in a private, anonymous and quarantined fashion.

While this may sounds like a Internet United Nations Better Business Bureau, the underlying questions point right at the important of cloud computing for national security. As the world embraces cloud computing for its ubiquity, efficiency and cost savings, the world economic engine will become evermore dependent on cloud security and the active management of public-private cloud interfaces.

No wonder the US DoD is jumping on the bandwagon so quickly.
