Networked computers reside at the heart of systems on which people now rely, both in critical national infrastructures and in their homes, cars, and offices. Today, many of these systems are far too vulnerable to cyber attacks that can inhibit their operation, corrupt valuable data, or expose private information. Cyber Trust promotes a vision of a society in which networked computer systems are: more predictable, more accountable, and less vulnerable to attack and abuse; developed, configured, operated and evaluated by a well-trained and diverse workforce; and used by a public educated in their secure and ethical operation. To improve national cyber security and achieve the Cyber Trust vision, NSF will support a collection of projects that together: advance the relevant knowledge base; creatively integrate research and education for the benefit of technical
specialists and the general populace; and integrate the study of technology with the policy, economic, institutional and usability factors that often determine its deployment and use. Proposals funded will support single and multiple-investigator projects within the broad range of disciplines contributing to the Cyber Trust vision. Projects will be supported in three categories: Single Investigator or Small Group projects, Team projects, and Center-Scale projects. The resulting Cyber Trust award portfolio will: advance the cyber security research frontier; build national education and workforce capacity (including undergraduate, graduate, and faculty development and training); and ensure that new knowledge can be put into practice. All awards made are subject to the requirements of P.L. 107-305, the Cyber Security Research and Development Act.
