Questions regarding bios

Can you send me a bio to use when introducing you, or to announce your talk?

Please select the most appropriate bio from the choices below (separated by horizontal line).
Dr. Clifford Neuman is director of the Center for Computer Systems Security at the Information Sciences Institute (ISI) of the University of Southern California (USC), and a faculty member in the Computer Science Department at USC. Dr. Neuman earned a Bachelor's degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and subsequently worked at Project Athena. He received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Washington. Dr. Neuman conducts research in distributed systems, computer security, and electronic commerce. He is the principal designer of Kerberos authentication system, which among other deployments, provides user authentication for Microsoft's Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Dr. Neuman also developed the NetCheque® and NetCash systems, and the Prospero Directory Service. His current research focuses on the use of dynamic security policies in distributed systems that can support the formation of dynamic coalition's of cooperating organizations while adapting and responding to perceived network threats.

Dr. Neuman conducts research in distributed systems, computer security, and electronic commerce. He is the the principal designer of the Kerberos authentication system and architected its use as a basis for distributed authorization. The Kerberos system has served as the basis for many commercial computer security products and among other deployments, provides user authentication for Microsoft's Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Dr. Neuman also developed the NetCheque® and NetCash systems, and the Prospero Resource Manager and Directory Service. The NetCheque® and NetCash systems provide secure distributed on-line payment particularly suited for micropayements or for managing resources consumption in distributed systems. The Prospero Directory Service is used widely as an embedded protocol for organizing and communicating information across the Internet. The Prospero Resource Manager forms the basis of a network computing infrastructure that supports the scheduling of processing resources across organizational boundaries.

Dr. Neuman's current research focuses on the use of dynamic security policies in distributed systems that can support the formation of dynamic coalition's of cooperating organizations while adapting and responding to perceived network threats.

Dr. Neuman conducts research in distributed systems, computer security, and electronic commerce. He is the principal designer of the Kerberos authentication system and architected its use as a basis for distributed authorization. The Kerberos system has served as the basis for many commercial computer security products and among other deployments, provides user authentication for Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The Kerberos system will soon be the basis for authentication in Microsoft Passport. In 2002, Dr. Neuman was selected as one of Infoworld Magazine's top technology innovators for his work on Kerberos.

Dr. Neuman also developed the NetCheque® and NetCash systems, and the Prospero Resource Manager and Directory Service. The NetCheque® and NetCash systems provide secure distributed on-line payment particularly suited for micropayements or for managing resources consumption in distributed systems. The Prospero Directory Service is used widely as an embedded protocol for organizing and communicating information across the Internet. The Prospero Resource Manager forms the basis of a network computing infrastructure that supports the scheduling of processing resources across organizational boundaries.

Dr. Neuman served on a panel for a National Research Council study on the use of information technology in Government and has participated as a speaker in many other NRC studies. He also served on a committee organized by the California Secretary of State looking at the technical requirements for the use of the Internet in voting.

Dr. Neuman's current research focuses on the use of dynamic security policies in distributed systems that can support the formation of dynamic coalition's of cooperating organizations while adapting and responding to perceived network threats.
