The Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST) is a university and industry consortium that studies cybersecurity issues related to health care, national infrastructures, law, and other issues facing the general public.

"TRUST is an international flagship program that explores a multitude of cybersecurity aspects that will directly impact the future of the United States--and the planet at large," says TRUST's Suzanna Schmeelk.

The cyber-Defense Technology Experimental Research (DETER) testbed conducts repeatable experiments in computer security, focusing on TRUST-related research. DETER is useful for studying aspects of traditional information security, such as integrity, availability and confidentiality. As the different techniques are combined to examine realistic scenarios using TRUST, it can be executed on DETER to obtain repeatable results.

"The best parts of my personal TRUST experience have been working with the brilliant individuals associated with TRUST coupled with the avant-garde and dynamic nature of the investigated issues and solutions," Schmeelk says.

TRUST also sponsors the TRUST Academy Online, a Web-based portal that provides cybersecurity education resources to researchers.
