Matthew Bishop


Matthew Bishop is a computer security specialist in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California at Davis. After earning his Ph.D. in computer science -- specializing in computer security -- at Purdue in 1984, Bishop joined the Research Institute of Advanced Computer Science, a consortium organized by NASA Ames Research Center, as a research scientist. From there, he joined the faculty at Dartmouth College.(1)

In 1993 Bishop moved to UC Davis, where he currently specializes in the analysis of vulnerabilities in computer systems, which includes developing tools for vulnerability detection and elimination. His other research interests include network security, denial of service attacks, software assurance testing, and policy and access control modeling.

Bishop has published widely on computer security(2), including ongoing security work in UNIX since 1979, and two textbooks on computer security, Computer Security: Art and Science, and Introduction to Computer Security. Bishop continues to teach numerous computing related courses, including software engineering, programming, and computer security.(3)

His invaluable collection of two dozen "Seminal Papers" in computer security includes full PDFs of the 1972 Anderson report, Bell-Lapadula, Biba, and many others. He describes Willis Ware's 1970 Rand Report, 'Security Controls for Computer Systems: Report of Defense Science Board Task Force on Computer Security' as "The paper that started it all, first raising computer security as a problem."
