The Institute for Security Technology Studies Founded
The Institute for Security Technology Studies (ISTS) at Dartmouth College is founded. It is dedicated to pursuing research and education for cyber security and trust.
ISTS strengthens homeland security through interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach programs that focus on technology critical for cyber security and trust. ISTS nurtures leaders and scholars, educates students and the community, and collaborates with its partners to deploy technology to benefit our community and to better understand technology's impact on our security. ISTS research improves our ability to design secure computer systems and protect them from attacks, enables people and organizations to form secure trust relationships across networked computing devices, and addresses social, economic, and policy issues that arise in the development and deployment of such technology.
