DOD aims to make classified networks WikiLeaks-proof

Defense Department officials are implementing new procedures to protect the secret-level classified network it shares with the State Department from the kind of breaches that lead to WikiLeaks exposing diplomatic cables last year, reports the Washington Post.

DOD will disable write access for many computers on the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network, issue smart cards to access SIPRNet, and use insider-threat detection technology and programs developed by other agencies.
