LOS GATOS, CALIFORNIA - April 23, 2001 - The Internet Security Conference (TISC) announced it will present the 2nd annual TISC CLUE Award to Bill Cheswick, Internet security pioneer and Chief Scientist of Lumeta Corp. The TISC CLUE Award seeks to recognize outstanding achievement in the sharing of knowledge regarding Internet security systems issues, design and deployment. The TISC CLUE Award presentation will take place at 12:15: p.m., Wednesday, June 6th, at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The award presentation will be followed by Mr. Cheswick's own keynote address to TISC, entitled, "Mapping and Visualizing the Internet and Intranets." http://www.tisc2001.com/keynote2.html 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 subject. 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 enlighten." "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."
