Overview Edit

The Trusted Foundry Program is

a DoD program that provides a cost-effective means to assure the integrity and confidentiality of integrated circuits during design and manufacturing while providing the US Government with access to leading edge microelectronics technologies for both Trusted and non-sensitive applications.[1]

It is administered by NSA's Trusted Access Program Office and aims "to ensure that mission-critical national defense systems have access to leading-edge integrated circuits from secure, domestic sources."[2]
