US-China Initiative for Combating Spam
On February 23, 2011, at a general meeting in Orlando, Florida (USA), Karl Frederick Rauscher Chief Technology Officer of the EastWest Institute announced that a cyber-security report from the combined effort of United States and China would be released before long. PR Newswire published this in news on February 24, 2011.
Said Rauscher, the above meeting was the first that was being held. The two nations had a lot of distrust between them in the cyber world still they had immense interdependencies in technical and economic affairs. It was astonishing how the countries had such lack of faith, the CTO indicated. V3.co.uk published this in news on February 24, 2011.
The meeting took on board the recommendations, which are, setting up protocols for isolating spam mails from genuine e-mails; making consumers aware of the dangers from botnets; and specifying ways for stopping spam say by inducing ISPs to let e-mail recipients ban messages they doubt as spam, a technique called "feedback loop."
Stated Rauscher that the EastWest Institute regarded the report as one of its several initiatives for assisting in minimizing the lack of faith between the US and China vis-à-vis cyber security. PR Newswire reported this.
According to the CTO, the specialists thought about curbing spam partly since China had acquired big feats in lessening e-mail junk during the past few years - a remarkable accomplishment even as Internet users there had grown rapidly. He stated that in the report, the two countries' private sectors would be explained how they could play leadership roles.
Elaborated Director of Internet Society Yonglin Zhou of the network security committee of China that it astonished him to find how much support there was to encourage such dialogs inside China. According to him, there would be voluntary proposals in the report for private organizations to adopt towards curbing spam in the best possible manner. V3.co.uk reported this.
Zhou added that the report would not be the end of the two countries' collaborative effort rather cooperation would continue between their experts for starting talks as well as promoting mutual understanding. Nextgov published this in news on February 24, 2011.
