I’ve spent over 25 years in security now, hmm.
Some heroes. If you don’t know them….
- Wietse Venema. The best.
- Steve Bellovin. Also the best.
Other, mostly younger, turks, in not too much of an ordered fashion that I can’t call random.
- Tsutomo shimomura. When he walks into a room of people the IQ doubles.
- Matt blaze. I wouldn’t want to be his enemy.
- HD Moore. I wouldn’t want to be his target either. Big brain, big heart.
- David wagner. Yikes.
- Michal Zalewski
- Niels provost (also a viking sword maker)
- Dug song
- Solar designer
- Peter neumann. May I be half as active, productive smart and cool when I’m his age. Heck, just let me grow up to be as old ;)
- Vern paxson. Yeah, networking… security also.
- Whitfield Diffie
Thanks for all the memories and inspiration.
