Summary of Experience
I have more than 35 years experience in computer science research, focusing primarily on issues in computer security, information assurance, and trustworthy computing, and in research management, research funding and program management.  Publications are available here.
At the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, I worked for 23 years as a researcher and section head, managing a small group of researchers developing concepts and prototypes in security modeling, high assurance software, secure system development, database management system security, and token-based authentication. Among the developments in which I participated or led include the NRL Pump, Onion Routing, a taxonomy of security flaws, the first extensive survey of formal security models, and the development of application-based security models, including the first documented example of role-based access control. During this period I received Outstanding Paper awards from the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy, generally acknowledged as the premier forum for research in this field, and from the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC). From the Naval Research Laboratory, I received an invention award and several awards for outstanding performance. Also during this period I founded IFIP WG11.3 on Database Security (now extended to Database and Application Security and Privacy) and chaired the group for 7 years.  I was also nominated and elected as the first chair of the Trustworthy Computing Panel (XTP-1) under The Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP), a treaty-based organization under which defense laboratories in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand share research results and coordinate research activities. I served in this role for ten years.
My professional activities with the IEEE include serving as Chair of the Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, Chair of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy, and a four-year term as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Security and Privacy Magazine, the leading peer-reviewed technical magazine in this field. I have been an Associate-Editor-in-Chief of the magazine since its founding in 2003 and remain on its Editorial Board. I have also been active in ACM activities related to Trustworthy Computing. Currently I serve on the Steering Committee of their major conference, the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security, was honored to receive their Outstanding Contribution Award in 2009.
Since leaving NRL in 1999, I have assisted, developed and managed research programs in cybersecurity for the National Science Foundation (NSF), DARPA, and the Intelligence Advanced Research Activity (IARPA) and its predecessor organizations, the Advanced Research and Development Activity (ARDA) and the Disruptive Technology Office (DTO).  I was invited to come to NSF in 2001 to develop their first program in Trusted Computing. In the course of a four-year term at NSF, and with management support, I led the growth of this initially small program into the Cyber Trust program with grants totaling about $35M in 2005; I received a Director’s Award for Program Management Excellence for my performance. Four center-scale activities awarded under this program addressed issues of security in power grids, voting systems, Internet epidemiology, and secure interaction security.  At ARDA/DTO, I inaugurated a program in Accountable Information Flow that supported research which has matured into the Open-Flow networking scheme, Telcordia’s ConfigAssure tool to verify network and operating system configurations against formal policy specifications, and many other areas.  After IARPA was established, I developed the first program to be approved and funded by the new Director, Automatic Privacy Protection, which developed methods for practical symmetric Private Information Retrieval; a second phase of the program has been initiated by my successor under a new name.  I also developed an ongoing program for the automatic certification of software called STONESOUP – Securely Taking On New Executable Software Of Uncertain Provenance – that is ongoing. At the end of the four-year assignment with ARDA/DTO/IARPA, I was invited back to NSF to resume leadership of the (renamed and expanded) Trustworthy Computing Program, which in 2010 awarded about $55M in grants.
