The IEEE is helping the National Institute of Standards and Technology address certification and accreditation of systems by opening work on a standard that will enhance security. The P1700 security architecture standard (http://ieeeia.org/scaiswg/) will create a basis for ensuring a system's techniques for maintaining quality of service are in line with its security risks. The overall standard architecture and some versions that implement it should be done this year.
