So it's a DNS filter...? Why do they need one specifically controlled by DOD?

shiat, Quad9 is free, OpenDNS is, etc. There's like a thousand services that will do this already, that AREN'T literally The Government.

All they'd be doing is muscling out the smaller fry hacking collectives and taking their place. There is no other plausible reason to do this.

I still remember when NSA dropped SELinux and said, "here, play with this".

Similar to the tamper-proof seals they introduced after the Chicago Tylenol Murders.

They're spooky bastards but sometimes they do something cool.

Remember when they got everybody to seed the TCP sequence numbers with the encrypted master password?  That is spooky turned up to 11.

The SELinux was an attempt to get Trusted-Systems into the hands of enough people to get the industry to use it.  I still don't know of anyone who built systems that used Labeled Systems other than myself.

I would look to what's currently going on in Australia vis a vis the state-sponsored cyberattack against AU government and business institutions.

If China doesn't back down to AU's threat that it will see this as an act of war, than yes, you absolutely need something controlled by the guys who are supposed to defend us, from hostile state-sponsored cyberwarfare groups.
