Noema based Internet

The Internet, as defined by the four layers of physical link, network, transport, and applications is not quite a Noema. There are several key missing components among these include the concept of a unique identity, principal, an authentication system, an authorization system, a stronger data protection system, and a family of name spaces. All under the watchful eye of a security environment.
