More than 95 percent of all email flowing through internet mail servers today is in a vulnerable, unencrypted form, despite the availability of the tools needed to make secure electronic mail a reality. Using this $500,000, five-year grant, Green will deepen our fundamental understanding of the design, architecture and implementation of secure messaging systems, and will examine the conflicting requirements created by the need for exceptional access mechanisms.

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.
