corporation for research and educational networking

Short for Corporation for Research and Educational Networking, CREN was a not-for-profit corporation created after the merger of BITNET (because it's time network) and CSNET (Computer Science Network) in 1988. CREN supported both the email-based applications and services that are a prominent feature of BITNET, and a public key infrastructure for higher education. In 1996, CREN ended its support and on January 7, 2003, CREN's members decided to dissolve the organization entirely.
