Cerf and the "secure from the start" Internet

Early Arpanet Map

Vint Cerf, co-intentor of TCP/IP, talked recently about the technology available to "secure the Internet" when it first arrived. News sites claimed "The Internet could have been secure from the start, but the tech was classified." 

 That's really not what he said. And it's not true.

 

If the Internet had been made "secure from the start," then none of us would be using it.
