AWARD CITATION

This group is honored for leading security improvements to hundreds of NIST public websites and completing this technically challenging and widely distributed effort in a short period of time, well ahead of most other federal agencies. Over 250 NIST public websites, hosted on- and off-premise, are now only accessible using strong encryption protocols and ciphers. This effort also resulted in reducing the number of NIST public web servers, eliminating those that were no longer needed, and migrating the content of others to www.nist.gov.
