Abstract

The US National Security Agency (NSA) established a program in Information Assurance education in 1999 that established Centers for Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE). While designated a success by the government, the program has been criticized over the years by program participants as less than optimal. In this paper, we review the program and identify the most serious problems. We then suggest possible solutions to these problems in order to improve the program so that it represents true excellence in IA education.
