In this paper we examine the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) 4011-4016 family of standards for high assurance academic programs. Currently, institutions that apply for the NSA Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE) or Information Assurance Courseware Evaluation (IACE) designation must map their curricula to the CNSS standards. We survey academic institutions that have earned either the CNSS CAEIAE or IACE about their experiences in performing the mapping.
