Deadline: October, November, or December 2008 depending on the size of the
Estimated number of awards: 36 to 50. (WOW!)
Synopsis: The program will support projects that strengthen the scientific
foundations of trustworthiness, in order to inform the creation of new
trustworthy technologies. We especially seek new models, logics,
algorithms*, and *theories *for analyzing and reasoning about all aspects of
trustworthiness-- reliability, security, privacy, and
about all components and their composition. Building on its predecessor
program Cyber Trust, the Trustworthy Computing program will also continue to
support projects that explore the fundamentals of cryptography, that
examine and strengthen security weaknesses in current algorithms or
protocols, and that explore new computing models that promise to improve
trustworthiness or our reasoning about it.
As Richard Beigel (NSF Theory Director)
mentioned at the Complexity Conference, interdisciplinary programs have
been noticeably theory-friendly of late.
