PGP key information here

I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California at Davis. I am one of the co-directors of the Computer Security Laboratory here. I do research in computer security. Currently, my interests seem to focus on election processes, data sanitization, and the insider problem. I also like teaching.

Our son Steven married Brianna Benedetto on May 26, 2018. Click here for pictures from the wedding. One of them is me in a suit, which I put up here to amaze and amuse my friends, who probably didn’t realize I even had a suit!

A second edition of my book Computer Security: Art and Science, originally published by Addison-Wesley Professional in December 2002, will be published in 2018. A somewhat different version, Introduction to Computer Security, was published in 2004, again by Addison-Wesley Professional. Check them out and see which you prefer.

Graduate Admissions. Click here for information on being admitted to do graduate work in information assurance or computer security, including a link to the on-line application. Please do not write me asking about your chances of getting in, or if I will admit you. I get too many such letters to answer them, and my answers are the same for everyone: I don’t know, and I do not have the authority to, respectively.
