Martin E. Hellman

Martin Hellman (b. October 2, 1945), currently Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, is best known in the field of computer security for his work on cryptography. At Stanford in the 1970s, Hellman, Whitfield Diffie and Ralph Merkle created the Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange, a method that allows two parties to exchange encrypted information securely over a public channel that has since become the basis for public key cryptography. The exchange was outlined in the 1976 paper "New Directions in Cryptography." Throughout his career Hellman has been an active participant in discussions of ethics and privacy in computer security.(1)

Hellman received his B.E. from New York University in 1966, and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1967 and 1969, all in Electrical Engineering. Worked briefly at IBM's Watson Research Center from 1968-69 and then as an Assistant Professor of electrical Engineering at MIT from 1969-71. In 1971 he returned to Stanford where he served on the regular faculty until becoming Professor Emeritus in 1996. Over the course of his career, Hellman has published over seventy papers and registered ten U.S. patents. He has also been the recipient of major awards including the RSA Lifetime Achievement Award. (2)

Jeffrey Yost from the Charles Babbage Institute conducted an oral history interview with Martin Hellman (OH 375) on November 22, 2004.
