Welcome to the TRUST Academy Online (TAO) Portal
This site disseminates learning materials developed or contributed by educators participating in the Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (), a NSF Science and Technology Center. TRUST is devoted to the development of a new science and technology that will radically transform the ability of organizations (software vendors, operators, local and federal agencies) to design, build, and operate trustworthy information systems for our critical infrastructure.
TRUST researchers incorporate their findings and methods, whenever possible, into the standard curricula addressing operating systems, programming languages and compilers, analysis of algorithms, networking protocols, and databases. The primary goal for the TAO Portal is to make a body of these curricular materials available to the larger educational community. Courseware development aims at three areas of research: security technology, systems science, and social sciences related to the development of TRUST. This curriculum development will follow different trajectories in the different disciplinary departments and result in materials of different granularities, from individual modules to complete courses, that address education from the lower division to the advanced graduate level as TRUST evolves.
Given the evolving nature of this enterprise, this portal and the materials it provides will also be evolving. If you don't locate materials that address your particular need during this visit, please check back again for additional materials at a later time.
