Abstract
The overarching objective of Information Assurance (IA) studies is to improve security in real systems. The CISR program enables students to understand the kinds of technologies that are available to solve current computer security problems and to consider potential future technologies. To this end, our research focuses on using a variety of trusted systems to explore topics in security policy enforcement, security technology for database systems, monolithic and networked trusted computing techniques, and ultimately to develop the training and tools to support trusted systems. The CISR research program provides a unifying conceptual framework and management structure for long range planning and coordination of focused Information Assurance research projects. The primary program goal is to support the strengthening of assurance provided by the National Information Infrastructure. Our approach includes the research and development of high assurance networks, systems, components and tools, and the open dissemination of outputs from those efforts, such as code and documentation. Open distribution of program outputs provides widespread availability of Information Assurance solutions, as well as clear examples and guidance for high assurance solutions developed elsewhere.
