Committee on National Security Systems*

Introduction

The National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Committee (NSTISSC) was established in July 1990 by President George H. Bush under National Security Directive 42 (NSD 42), “National Policy for the Security of National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems.” NSD 42(a) establishes the NSTISSC to consider technical matters and develop operating policies, procedures, guidelines, instructions, and standards as necessary to implement provisions of NSD 42. Due to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, a partial version of NSD 42 is available on the Web at http://www.fas.org/irp/offdocs/nsd/nsd_42.htm.
