The Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST) is focused on the development of cybersecurity science and technology that will radically transform the ability of organizations to design, build, and operate trustworthy information systems for the nation's critical infrastructure. Established as a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center (STC), TRUST is addressing technical, operational, legal, policy, and economic issues affecting security, privacy, and data protection as well as the challenges of developing, deploying, and using trustworthy systems.
TRUST activities are advancing a leading-edge research agenda to improve the state-of-the art in cybersecurity; developing a robust education plan to teach the next generation of computer scientists, engineers, and social scientists; creating outreach programs to increase the pipeline of women and underrepresented minorities in science and engineering; and pursuing knowledge transfer opportunities to transition TRUST results to end users within industry and the government.
TRUST is addressing technical, operational, privacy, and policy challenges via interdisciplinary projects that combine fundamental science and applied research to deliver breakthrough advances in trustworthy systems in three "grand challenge" areas:
Financial Infrastructures – Creation of a trustworthy environment that links and supports commercial transactions among financial institutions, online retailers, and customers.
Health Infrastructures – Technology that advances "Healthcare Informatics" to enable engaged patients, personalized medicine, providers as coach-consultants, and agile evidence-based care.
Physical Infrastructures – Advances that support next generation Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and distributed control systems, including power, water, and telecommunications.
TRUST projects have a holistic view that addresses computer security, software technology, analysis of complex interacting systems, and economic, legal, and public policy issues. As such, TRUST draws on researchers is such diverse fields as Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Economics, Electrical Engineering, Law, Public Policy, and the Social Sciences.
