Whether it exists or not, funds are available for scholarships. As usual,
the conditions for scholarship are excellence. Probably starts with not
denying that IA exists. No idea if its US citizens only; seems likely.

 

This is all part of the new NSA - not just a bunch of spooks, but an agency
with the engineering skill to develop critical infrasructures (having helped
DoD build there infrasrcutures, for years).

 

I don't know why Im saying this, being a foreigner. But, it looks good
stuff!

Here is some UK stuff :

an application to university data center work. 

According to http://uk.linkedin.com/in/mgough, there is apparently a cabinet
office IA role. "The Information Security & Assurance Board (ISAB). UK CESG
expresses its interest and role at

If you are interesting in high-end crypto, particular devices, and IA,
perhaps go to

Presumably, at some point we want to appeal to these types of folks,
speaking their language. Their support will be critical to adoption.

 

 

Be nice to see some other links too, to other national programs in IA. It's
the natural home for webid, as it matures.
