    We offer the National Academy of Sciences September 1998 report, "Trust in
    Cyberspace," a 243-page survey of all security issues and technologies
    associated with the Internet and computer networks: 
       http://jya.com/tic-intro.htm  (Introduction only, 58K)
       http://jya.com/tic.htm  (Full report, 882K)
       http://jya.com/tic.zip  (Full report zipped, 302K)
    The report reviews prior studies such as the CRISIS report on
    cryptography, the PCCIP report on protecting US infrastructure, the DoD
    report on Information Warfare - Defense, and several others, assesses
    those findings in greater depth, looks at technology and research needed,
    and recommends what government (NSA and DARPA) and private
    industry/eduation should do to assure security. 
    NSA is upbraided for its opposition to strong cryptography and culture of
    overcontrolling secrecy. NSA's R2 research unit is singled out as needing
    to find ways to compete with industry for the best talent so that the
    agency's skills and tools do not lag the world market.
