Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection

The Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P) is a consortium of national cyber security institutions, including academic research centers, U.S. federal government laboratories, and nonprofit organizations, all of which have long-standing, widely recognized expertise in cyber security research and development (R&D). The I3P is managed by The George Washington University, which is home to a small administrative staff that oversees and helps direct consortium activities.[1]

The I3P coordinates and funds cyber security research related to critical infrastructure protection and hosts high impact workshops that bring together leaders from both the public and private sectors.[2][3] The I3P brings a multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional perspective to complex and difficult problems, and works collaboratively with stakeholders in seeking solutions. Since its founding in 2002,[4] more than 100 researchers from a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds have worked together to better understand and mitigate critical risks in the field of cyber security.

The I3P came into existence following several government assessments of the U.S. information infrastructure’s susceptibility to catastrophic failure. The first study, published in 1998 by the United States President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), recommended that a nongovernmental organization be formed to address national cyber security issues. Subsequent studies–by the Institute for Defense Analyses, as well as a white paper jointly produced by the National Security Council and the Office of Science and Technology Policy, agreed with the PCAST assessment, affirming the need for an organization dedicated to protecting the nation’s critical infrastructures.[4]

In 2002, the I3P was founded at Dartmouth College through a grant from the federal government.[2] Martin Wybourne chaired the I3P from 2003 to 2015. Since its inception, the I3P has:

  • coordinated a national cyber security research and development program
  • built informational and research bridges among academic, industrial and government stakeholders
  • developed and delivered technologies to address an array of vulnerabilities

Funding for the I3P has come from various sources, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the National Science Foundation (NSF).[5]

The I3P consortium consists of 18 academic research centers, 5 national laboratories, and 3 nonprofit research organizations.[6]

Each member institution appoints a primary and secondary representative to attend regular consortium meetings.[7]
