One of the great pleasures of working for CITRIS is the opportunity to see the technologies that will profoundly impact the Internet of tomorrow as they are being developed. This newsletter examines two such areas of research.
Our first feature looks at how researchers at the Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST) are joining forces with law enforcement and industry to combat electronic identity theft. Thanks to their efforts, Internet users already have some new tools at their disposal to protect themselves against such problems as phishing schemes and malicious keylogging software.
In our second feature, CITRIS researchers discuss their contributions to the optical network of the future. It is difficult to imagine an Internet that is 10,000 times faster than the one we have today, but many are predicting it could be a reality as soon as five years from now.As always, we appreciate your continued support of CITRIS and all the excellent work our researchers and partners are doing. We welcome your comments and ideas.<!-- InstanceEndEditable --> <!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="Director" -->
