NDIA is pleased to offer their third workshop designed to identify ways in which Trusted Microelectronics  can contribute to greater systems security and information assurance. The Trusted Suppliers   Steering  Group  is  organizing   the  agenda  for  this  half-­‐day  workshop   to  provoke  an interactive  exchange  of ideas to improve  security  for, and ensure the quality of, defense  systems and networks.   At our previous  workshops,  we heard from Government  officials  on their thinking behind  DoDI  5200.44,  and  from  Industry  representatives  who  identify  and  manage  supply  chain risks.  We discussed the supply chain risks beyond the ASICs covered by DoDI 5200.44. We explored the differences  between  a Trusted  Supplier  and a trustworthy  supplier,  and how  do you choose which  is  best  for  your  program.  And  we  learned  how  anti-­tamper  and  anti-­counterfeit  initiatives inform program protection decisions.
In our third workshop, we plan to continue the dialogue between Government  and Industry on the challenges  for  comprehensive   supply  chain  risk  management  and  program  protection.  How  do quality and safety protocols connect with microelectronics  supply chain security? How can industry address the unique security, quality and safety considerations in defense microelectronics supply chains? Representatives  from the Trusted Suppliers Steering Group will be on hand to describe how they can address those challenges.
The  Trusted   Suppliers   Steering   Group  is  a  self-­formed   alliance   of  companies   that  have  been accredited   by   Defense   Microelectronics   Activity (DMEA) to   provide   Trusted   Microelectronics products and services to Government programs. The Group consists of Aeroflex Corporation, BAE Systems Inc., Cypress Semiconductor  Corporation,  Honeywell  International  Inc., Intrinsix Corp, Jazz Semiconductor Trusted Foundry, ONSemiconductor, Photronics Inc., and Teledyne Technologies inc.
