How on earth could you scale an internet attack on the same scale as the september 11th attacks? I commend the mock attack so that they can know where their weak points are at and brainstorm on how to plug them up. But three thousand lives where lost in the world trade building, how can that be replicated on the web? How can they possibly think that an amount of life to that extent can be lost because of a web attack?

Well, it appears that the administration has a plan to deal with a cybersecurity threat. Obama will have the power to turn off any parts of the internet that he wants.

Bill would give president emergency control of Internet

QUOTE
The new version would allow the president to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" relating to "non-governmental" computer networks and do what's necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for "cybersecurity professionals," and a requirement that certain computer systems and networks in the private sector be managed by people who have been awarded that license.


So, not only will he have the authority to turn off the internet, only people trained and approved by the administration will have access to the "important" parts of it. I wonder what parts those will be. Perhaps they will be the circuits used for banks to talk to each other. Maybe they will include industrial WANs.

I also wonder what parts of the internet will be targeted for shutdown. We have been hearing how conservative blogs, talk show hosts, and people who show up for town-hall meetings are "brown shirts" and how they are carrying swastikas. Various leftists have also described conservative Christians as "domestic terrorists". Is it too much of a stretch to imagine that "the One" might decide to turn off all the conservative blogs? With his control of the airwaves assured with his new czar in the FCC, if he were to shut down the internet, he would control all the forms of communication.

Networks have been under attack -- and successfully handled by operators -- as long as they've been around. Be wary of calls for more government supervision of the Internet. Ref. Source 1
