This interview with computer security pioneer Teresa Lunt discusses her work in the computer security field at MITRE Corporation, SRI International, DARPA, and PARC. At SRI she was a principal research scientist on IDES, the first meaningful intrusion detection expert system. Lunt also discusses her work at SRI pioneering a highly secure database system (research initially launched by Dorothy Denning), as well as her work at DARPA’s Information Technology Office where she started programs to fund research in computer and network security. The interview concludes with her discussion of security work at PARC, where she is the Director of the Computer Science Laboratory.
