Title : The New-Zealand NSA, GCSB won't wear a CARDIGAN

How the networking research and innovation project CARDIGAN [1]
<http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2013/papers/hotsdn/p169.pdf> in
Software Defined Networking SDN Openflow [13]
<http://archive.openflow.org/wp/learnmo> have been killed by the New
Zealand NSA local agency GCSB [5] <http://www.gcsb.govt.nz/our-work/>[6]
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_Communications_Security_Bureau>
law TICSA [4] <http://www.ncsc.govt.nz/ticsa/>[7]
<http://www.police.govt.nz/about-us/programmes-and-initiatives/telecommunications/questions-answers>:


All New-Zealander operators have to declare the manufacturing origin of all
their network equipment. How all the component  of a complex pieces of
hardware like an Ethernet switch could have single origin ?!
All New-Zealander operators have to declare 20 days in advance any type of
change on their network, for example adding a new routing policy or a
activating a new link.
If there is no respect of one of those two points they will have to pay a
monstrous redundant daily fine.


The REANNZ CARDIGAN [1]
<http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2013/papers/hotsdn/p169.pdf>[2]

<http://www.zdnet.com/article/treehouse-software-defined-networking-project-claims-a-breakthrough/>
[11] <http://reannz.co.nz/about-reannz> was the first SDN IXP distributed
fabric network in operation. It was running for more than two years and
important on going academic project like OONI [8] could have reprogrammed
dynamically the fabric routing policy to counter possible censorship. But
no, REANNZ could not offer the economic risk as GCSB  did not like or/and
understand the CARDIGAN project.

FVEY[9] <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Eyes> laws are killing the
Academic Freedom [12] <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academic_freedom>to
preserve interceptions against our privacy.

SDN for IXP [10] <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_exchange_point>
projects can be used to insure a better control by the citizens on their
own digital contents during local transit and peering.
