Dartmouth College's Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P) has given the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs chairman Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and committee member Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) a report on the research and development challenges in cybersecurity. The report, "National Cyber Security Research and Development Challenge: an Industry, Academic and Government Perspective," contains the opinions of the executives, government officials, and researchers who took part in the series of I3P forums Sens. Lieberman and Collins co-chaired last fall. The report includes a set of recommendations from the I3P participants on how to advance research in cybersecurity over the next five to 10 years.

The report also discusses several needs that became apparent during the I3P forums last year, including the need to develop a coordinated and collaborative approach to cybersecurity, the need to develop metrics and assessment tools, and the need to create an effective legal and policy framework for security. In addition, the report discusses the need to address the human aspects of cybersecurity. The report concludes that the federal government will manage and oversee many of these recommendations, though it also will have to work with the private sector to implement the suggestions.
