To address a perceived lack of availability of educational resources for students and teachers in the field of information security, and advance the quality of information security education in general, our institutions have begun development of a web portal to house information security related educational materials, research and virtual exercises, as well as provide links to other resources. This portal is termed the PRISM, Public Repository for Information Security Materials This paper details the initial vision for the PRISM repository, outlines user interface, technical, and personnel requirements, and discusses some of the more interesting aspects of implementation including access control provisioning, and protocols for content submission, review and classification. Current status of the project is also presented, followed by a brief overview of near-term future plans.
