This project is a joint effort between the National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE) at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga (UTC) in Tennessee and at Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU) in Georgia together with Tuskegee University in Alabama. The project's goal is to develop a course curriculum, laboratory materials and teaching modules of cryptography in the area of Information Assurance (IA). Major challenges faced by today's information technology professionals include not only operation management but also threats from amateur hackers and career criminals whose levels of competency and sophistication have grown considerably. Security continues to be a top priority for Chief Information Officers (CIOs) across all industries and organizations in the United States.
Cryptography, as an important component in information assurance, provides the most efficient services for defending against threats in cyber space and holds even greater promise as the technology to provide security in the growing business and e-commerce concerns worldwide. Cryptography is, therefore, critical and of paramount importance for students in IA.
This project is supported by the National Science Foundation's Course Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement Program (CCLI) (type 1 award number 0942581).
