The NIST might come up with a standard, but which agency gets to enforce it and will the others abide by it? Given the way the government is be run, I'd say that whatever they come up with will be totally ignored by every department with the excuse from each department "we know how to do this better".... and then they hacked....

I really wish we had a cynic icon.... instead, I'll use the result of this whole thing....
