Fingerprint Sharing Alliance

To help reduce hacking, a new group called the Fingerprint Sharing Alliance has been formed. Some of the members include British Telecom, Cisco, Earthlink, Internet2, MCI, University of Pennsylvania, and Wiltel. As soon as one member sees evidence of a hacker, that information is immediately sent to the other members. In this way, they are hoping that everyone in the Alliance can take proactive action. This is one of the few times I have seen network and telecommunications vendors work together — I hope it works.
