What is CInet?
Critical Infrastructure owners and operators lack a secure means to communicate with each other and with the government in the event that public networks are under threat, disrupted, or cannot be trusted. The Global Resilience Institute has proposed the creation of a Critical Infrastructure Network (CInet) to provide a separate, secure communications network for critical infrastructure owners and operators.
CInet would allow the government to share classified threat intelligence with approved partners in the private sector. It could also be used to move operational communications off the public Internet and to restore communications in the event of a widespread Internet outage. Working with partners in the private sector, the Federal government, and state and local agencies, GRI is engaging in a feasibility study in the metro Boston Area and has begun preliminary technical design work.
