*Actually, for the defense industry, this is nothing new.  Seems to be more of a formality.*

U.S. Defense Department to Limit Use of Wireless Devices

The U.S. Department of Defense will introduce rules next month that limit the use of wireless devices inside military buildings. Officials are concerned that the devices are not secure, and that they could be used to eavesdrop on or track the location of military personnel.

The new rules place restrictions on the use of cell phones, pagers, and hand-held computers by civilian and military personnel. In a speech this week, Richard Clarke, the Bush Administration's cyber-security adviser, said it is irresponsible of the technology industry to sell products that can so easily be breached.
