Computer security pioneer Carl Landwehr discusses his educational training (Ph.D. University of Michigan), his research as computer scientist/supervisory computer scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory in the second half of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, and subsequent work as a research program officer for computer security at the National Science Foundation (over two separate tenures) and IARPA (where he served as a Division Chief). Among the topics discussed are the Secure Military Message System Project, survey work analyzing early security models, his work on application-based security models, and the role of federal research programs in advancing the field of computer security.
