FOIAA secret presidential directive on cybersecurity is going to stay secret, despite the best FOIA-filing efforts of the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

In a decision issued Monday, U.S. District Judge Beryl A. Howell rejected the long-running Freedom of Information Act request for the unredacted text of National Security Presidential Directive 54.

The Directive, described as "a confidential communication from the president of the United States to a select and limited group of senior foreign policy advisors, cabinet officials and agency heads on the subject of cybersecurity," was issued by then-President George W. Bush in January 2009.
