We are a cyber nation. The U.S. information infrastructure - including telecommunications and computer networks and systems and the data that reside on them - is critical to virtually every aspect of modern life. This information infrastructure is increasingly vulnerable to exploitation, disruption and destruction by a growing array of adversaries.
The President's Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI) calls for leap-ahead research and technology to reduce vulnerabilities to attacks in cyberspace. Unlike many research agenda that aim for steady progress in the advancement of science, the leap-ahead effort seeks a few revolutionary ideas with the potential to reshape the landscape.
