After one day on the job, the president's cyberspace security
adviser asked computer companies Wednesday to help design a new
secure telecommunications network for government use.

Richard Clarke said he wants the network, called GOVNET, to be
separate from the Internet to keep it safe from hackers or

Government agencies would use GOVNET for voice and data

Hmm.  Why not ask DARPA and the NSF?  I seem to recall them having
some experience in this area (OK, maybe not the 'secure' part)...
