2nd TUESDAY of the month at 11:45 AM
The format for our meetings is that about noon the speaker begins the presentation, after being introduced by Bob Kirby. About half an hour later lunch is served, which doesn't stop the presentation. Questions for the speaker are during the presentation or after it, depending on the wishes of the speaker.
Lunch costs $12.00 and is served family style. There is no charge for showing up if you don't want to eat lunch.
The Future of Trustworthy Systems and Networks
Peter G. Neumann (Neumann@CSL.sri.com), Senior Principal Scientist, has been at SRI International’s Computer Science Laboratory in Menlo Park since 1971. He spent 10 years at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey, in the 1960s, during which he was heavily involved in the development of Multics, jointly with MIT and Honeywell. Mr. Neumann has doctorates from Harvard and Darmstadt. His work involves computer systems and networks, trustworthiness/dependability, high assurance, security, reliability, survivability, safety, and many risks-related issues such as election-system integrity, crypto applications and policies, health care, social implications, and human needs --especially those including privacy. He is currently principal investigator on two DARPA projects: clean-slate trustworthy hosts for the CRASH program with new hardware and new software, and clean-slate networking for the Mission-oriented Resilient Clouds program. He moderates the ACM Risks Forum, has been reponsible for CACM's Inside Risks columns, chairs the ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy, and chairs the National Committee for Voting Integrity (http://www.votingintegrity.org). He created ACM SIGSOFT's Software Engineering Notes in 1976, was its editor for 19 years, and still contributes the RISKS section. He is on the editorial board of IEEE Security and Privacy. He has participated in four studies for the National Academies of Science: Multilevel Data Management Security (1982), Computers at Risk (1991), Cryptography's Role in Securing the Information Society (1996), and Improving Cybersecurity for the 21st Century: Rationalizing the Agenda (2007). His 1995 book, Computer-Related Risks, is still timely. He is a Fellow of the ACM, IEEE, and AAAS, and is also an SRI Fellow. He received the National Computer System Security Award in 2002, the ACM SIGSAC Outstanding Contributions Award in 2005, and the Computing Research Association Distinguished Service Award in 2013. In 2012, he was elected to the newly created National Cybersecurity Hall of Fame as one of the first set of inductees. He is a member of the U.S. Government Accountability Office Executive Council on Information Management and Technology. He co-founded People For Internet Responsibility (PFIR, http://www.PFIR.org). He has taught courses at Darmstadt, Stanford, U.C. Berkeley, and the University of Maryland.
