The Pentagon led the way for the rest of the government by implementing two-factor authentication across many of its systems. But plenty of important IT infrastructure still relies on a "reckless" system that depends on passwords alone for authentication.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

Military leaders up to and including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff say cyber attacks by a sophisticated nation state are near the top of the list of things they worry about. From that point of view, a new Pentagon report has to make them worry a bit more. It finds that far too many of DoD's own networks aren't up to the challenge of defending against amateur cyber attackers. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu talks about it as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

Alex Ward, Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security, Atlantic Council

Almost all the pieces are in place to move some meaningful defense acquisition reform. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) are the new chairmen of the Armed Services committees in Congress, and they both have a body of work in that subject. Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work and Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, Frank Kendall, are on board with an acquisition overhaul. And the likely nomination of Ash Carter as the new Defense Secretary puts the man behind the Better Buying Power concept at the top job of the Pentagon. Alex Ward is assistant director of the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security at the Atlantic Council. He's also my guest for Pentagon Solutions today. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said the anticipation for reform is mostly just hype.
