Without accountability, nothing will change and the kind of accountability matters. My work, after I joined the military, was directly accountable, as in whatever penalty a Court Martial may decide. Given it was all safety critical, it was not going to be a slap on the wrist and a Letter of Admonition. No such accountabiiity exists in the civilian world even if those works were safety critical or not. So, unless someone comes along and makes the penalties in line with personal accountability, nothing will change. We already know fines are meaningless in the corporate world.
Thr PRC is already starting to carve out exceptions in order not to interfere with IPO activity in Hong Kong. We'll see what happens. NSL has another meaning: National Security Letter, a statutory exception Constitutional Law in the context of national security. One that executed tousands of times per year bty the US government with little to no oversight as it is often executed with a gag order preventing notification of the target. Hmmm, seems US law is looser than PRC NSL. Odd that.
I regularly engineered software, hardware, and systems for the US Navy for a decade and, despite another twenty years of further use, no defects nor vulnerabilities have ever been found. All safety I critical systems and large as well. They were designed with formal verification. Internally, they are very definition of zero a trust as defects in the tools chain, operating system, even the hardware are assumed as possible conditions to defeat detected and addressed. If not, well the results would headline International news. For weeks.
