WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration says it wants the online world of the future to be open, secure, interoperable and reliable.

Top officials, including Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder, gathered at the White House on Monday for the release of what they said is the first document of its kind by the U.S. to spell out an international strategy for cyberspace.

The document is more a set of guiding principles than a binding text.

Its strategy envisions an online environment that rewards entrepreneurship and innovation, connects people, builds better governments and expands accountability. It also calls for safeguarding fundamental freedoms and personal privacy, and enhancing national and international security.
