The interactions between security and advanced networking are complex. Internet2 members and the entire R&E communty face the usual, and increasingly difficult, issues of security in a networked world. These challenges are compounded by the demands that advanced applications can make. Performance requirements such as high-bandwidth, end-to-end transparency, and support of new protocols are essential for the academic mission and innovation, but are not easily accommodated in current approaches to network security.
While applications such as desktop videoconferencing, access to grid-based resources, and remote device control have urgency in the research and education community, they also have great relevance to the corporate sector and are the innovation drivers for the future commercial marketplace. While our long term goals focus on the integration of security, high performance networking, and advanced applications, we also focus on providing new tools to address today's security problems. It is part of the overall EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council (formerly the Security Task Force) and complements other efforts in education, policy, training and related areas.
