Tit for Tat
I'm curious what would be required for an individual or business to gain access to this database, and whether it will be a free model or if this get commercialized. 

Only if the information remains free and open, and the organization itself transparent, will this fully succeed. 

The reason I raise the question of commercialization is that DHS has been sorely underfunded, with something like ~20 DHS projects identified by Congressional investigators as likely to fail or have poor outcomes.

If I recall correctly, a recent report from the Government Accountability Office documented DHS as planning to invest $10+ billion in acquisition programs.  With what money?

Look, if the Snowden effect means a little healthy distrust for Government, that's OK as long as the return on that is a more open Government willing to do tit-for-tat.  Let's see if this program is on the right track in two years and whether the database allows InfoSec as a whole in the US to make noticeable strides against cybercrime.

A good story and one we should all follow closely with great interest.

Great news
This is truly great news for the entire security world. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out in the end, but it's certainly a good start.
