    MICROSOFT IS ENROLLING a team of academic researchers to boost its security efforts and develop new technologies based on its .Net technology.

    The company Monday announced the formation of the Trustworthy Computing Academic Advisory Board, which will bring together academics from 12 to 15 colleges and universities to study and contribute to Microsoft's recent effort to improve the security and reliability of its products. Microsoft calls that effort the Trustworthy Computing Initiative.

    Universities taking part in the advisory board include Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the University of Maryland in College Park. The final lineup of the board is not complete, although members are expected to represent academic institutions from around the world, Microsoft said.

    I personally think this is a little more for their PR department's sake than anything else - but I would be glad to be proved wrong!
