In addition, Secure Endpoints along with Stanford University, Carnegie
Mellon University, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Fermi National Lab were
the entities that actively petitioned the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in
2007 and 2008 for the Mellon Award for Technology Collaboration on
behalf of "Network Identity Manager", a project of the MIT Kerberos team.
This effort resulted in the $100,000 award that the Consortium accepted
from Vint Cerf in 2008.
This is a true statement from which, one might conclude that these nominations by individuals on behalf of their institutions resulted in MIT winning the $100,000 Mellon award for NIM. However, this larger prize was awarded for MIT's entire contribution of Kerberos.
Many institutions and individuals have contributed to Kerberos development over the past two decades. They have contributed either in the form of effort or financing to perform effort. The economics of this ecosystem remain unchanged.
