Cyberspace is no longer science fiction. Today, networked information systems transport millions of people there to accomplish routine as well as critical tasks. And the current trajectory is clear: increased dependence on networked information systems. Unless these systems are made trustworthy, such dependence may well lead to disruption and disaster. The aphorism "Where there's a will, there's a way" provides a succinct way to summarize the situation. The "way," which today is missing, will require basic components, engineering expertise, and an expanded science base necessary for implementing trustworthy networked information systems. This study articulates a research agenda so that there will be a way when there is a will.

This is the tale of the infosys folk:
Multics to UNIX to DOS.
We once had protection that wasn't a joke
Multics to UNIX to DOS.
Now hackers and crackers and similar nerds
Pass viruses, horses, and horrible words
Through access controls that are for the birds.
Multics to UNIX to DOS.

With apologies to Franklin P. Adam
