Cyber and Network Security

Cyber and network security is focused on ensuring three security objectives of information technology systems: confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The Cyber and Network Security Program addresses NIST's statutory responsibilities in the domain and the near- and long-term scientific issues in some of the building blocks of IT and network security - cryptography, security testing and evaluation, access control, internetworking services and protocols (Domain Name System, Border Gateway Protocol, IPv6, Wi-Max, etc.), security metrics, vulnerability analysis, security automation, and security properties. These efforts will provide a more scientific foundation for cybersecurity, while maintaining a focus on near-term security issues in emerging technologies.
