The US Defense Department has published a manual about the qualifications and experience required of information assurance professionals. The manual includes images of certain certificates, a decision that may potentially encourage some enterprising but unethical individuals to fake their qualifications. Fortunately the images are monochrome whereas the original certificates presumably (hopefully!) have color seals etc. to reduce the risk of forgeries ... so if someone approaches you claiming these qualifications, make sure to check the original certificates and do not accept FAXes or photocopies. The same point applies to other certificates by the way. Caveat emptor.
