    The President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) has published this report to the President and the Congress on the progress in the NIT R&D program since 2010. The current study finds that important NITRD investments responsive to the 2010 recommendations have been made, with notable progress in the multi-agency investments in "big data," NIT-enabled interaction with the physical world, health IT, and cybersecurity. Furthermore, significant progress has been made in creating infrastructure for network scaling and testbeds.

    Visible to the public IEEE Security & Privacy

    This special issue of IEEE Security & Privacy presents three articles illustrating and reflecting on aspects of foundational science for computer security. We're a long way from establishing a science of security comparable to the traditional physical sciences, and even from knowing whether such a goal is even achievable. Nevertheless, the articles in this special issue hint at the possibility and promise of foundational approaches to security.
