information infrastructure are appropriately managed. Prior to this

Dr. Marsh will present a keynote address entitled "UK e-Government: Security
Challenges and Solutions for Innovative Service Delivery."  In this address,
Dr. Marsh will share some of the security challenges facing e-Government
services in the UK, as well as some of the solutions being explored to
address these challenges. SELinux is being explored as one of a number of
aids to securing UK e-government services. SELinux has the ability to
provide enhanced information assurance for key infrastructure components and
applications. A separate case study to be presented during the symposium
will discuss the planned use of SELinux in an UK e-Government pilot program.
