DOD gives interim wireless guidance

Tuesday, 27 August 2002, 10:02 AM EST

The Defense Department has decided to delay issuing its final security policies on restricting wireless devices in order to seek additional comments on the proposed rules, a DOD spokesman said.

Defense Department chief information officer John Stenbit has signed off on an "interim guidance" memo that went to the service secretaries and the directors of DOD agencies last week.

The assistant secretary of Defense for command, control, communications and intelligence will gather feedback and release the final security directive once a review of it is complete, the DOD spokesman said Aug. 23. He said that there is no specific time frame for closing the comment period.

DOD would not release a copy of the interim guidance, but it did release a "DOD wireless strategy information sheet."
