Cyberspace has become an instrument of universal mass surveillance and intrusion threatening everyone's creativity and freedom of expression. Intelligence services gobble up almost all the world's digital communications traffic and can break into almost any cell phone, personal computer, and datacenter to steal information, thereby causing the dangerous development that the most powerful nations are intensely preparing for pre-emptive massive cyberwar.

The massive security problem with cyberspace can be fixed by creating secure endpoints with universal use of public key cryptography. Hardware (that can be verified by independent parties to operate exactly according to formal specifications) has been developed that can prevent mass intrusions. Linux must adapt to this new hardware.
