|Abstract||In applied efforts to reduce the cost of the software life-cycle process, government agencies and industry are focusing on the reusability of software. Software reusability, both between various automated information systems and software projects, has become a primary requirement in many requests for proposals. Software reusability is, perhaps, one of the most significant low technology, cost-cutting methods available to the data processing community today. Without effective protective measures established and in place, however, reusing software can result in the proliferation of malicious code, resulting in the loss of dollars, possibly even lives. An effective protection plan for reusable software must combine verification of the software by the developer, appropriate protection of the software during both storage and use, guaranteed delivery and integrity when software is transferred, and re-verification of software by the new user prior to incorporation in a new design. NASA's approach to software protection establishes four hierarchical levels of automated information sensitivity and criticality and provides guidance for appropriate protective measures for each level. We advocate the addition of protection domains to the current NASA schema.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
