Geek challenge: A hack-proof network

Colorado Springs, Colorado (AP) -- It's a task that would challenge even the sharpest of computer geeks: set up a hacker-proof computer network for 190,000 government workers across the country fighting terrorism.

That's the challenge facing computer experts building a new system for the Homeland Security Department while keeping the existing network operational and secure.

Technology will be a key to the success of the new system, which is expected to take years to complete, said Edward Kinney, director of information technology for Customs & Border Protection.
