DoD Information Assurance - Information Security Grant Program

Project: Research project

Description

Arizona State University (ASU) submits a proposal for the DoD Information Assurance Scholarship Program (IASP), in which ASU has participated since 2008. ASU has established Information Assurance (IA) concentration programs in the Computer Science and Engineering Department (now merged in the School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering) and an Information Assurance Center (IAC) since 2006 to promote and strengthen the educational and research activities in IA. The IA Center has been designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE) and Research (CAE-R) by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security since 2007 and 2009, respectively. The IA educational and research activities address the broad issues for developing trustworthy information systems and ensuring the quality of information being stored, processed and transmitted by information systems and networks. The proposed program is to produce high-quality skilled IA professionals at ASU who are eager to serve the nation for improving the war fighting capability and protecting the critical information infrastructures, especially in DoD agencies. After extensive publicity and careful evaluation of potential nominees by the IA Centers Student Review Board, ASU nominates one outstanding Ph.D. student for the DoD IASP. This student is a returning student for the DoD IASP, and has outstanding performance this year, including two research papers submitted for review. He is also ready for taking the internship this coming summer. The nominee will be a great asset to DoD.
