    Conference (TISC) announced it will present the 2nd annual TISC CLUE
    Award to Bill Cheswick, Internet security pioneer and Chief Scientist

    systems issues, design and deployment.
    The TISC CLUE Award presentation will take place at 12:15: p.m.,

    Bill "Ches" Cheswick has worked on operating-system security for
    nearly 30 years. In 1987, Cheswick joined Bell Labs (now Lucent
    Technologies) as a member of the technical staff. Once described as
    the "sweet but feral hacker-in-residence at Bell Labs," Cheswick
    worked on firewalls, network security, PC viruses, mailers and
    interactive science exhibits. He co-authored the first full book on
    Internet security in 1994 and is a highly sought speaker on the
    The Internet maps he has created with Hal Burch have appeared on the
    cover of Nature, in Wired, and the National Geographic. Ches recently
    left Bell Labs to join Lumeta Corp., which is mapping and scanning
    corporate intranets. In his spare time he launches high-power rockets
    with his wife, works on exhibits for science museums, and automates
    his home.
    "Bill Cheswick epitomizes what the TISC Clue Award is all about,"
    explained Fred Avolio, an Internet security systems veteran of 10
    years and president of Avolio Consulting. "Not only does Bill come up
    with fabulously interesting ideas, he researches them and if something
    interesting comes of it, he is not happy unless he can teach others.
    Through it all, he always manages to entertain, educate, and
    "Bill Cheswick opened our eyes to how vulnerable a broadly
    Internet-connected world could be in 'Firewalls & Internet Security',
    which he wrote with Steve Bellovin in 1994," explains Dave Piscitello,
    president of Corecom and TISC founder and conference chair. "Many of
    the recommendations he and Steve made in 1994 are industry best
    practices today. And Ches has continued to contribute ever since. He's
    earned this acknowledgement and more."
