Notice: On June 30, 2016, UMWiki service will be decommissioned. If you have information in UMWIki that needs to be preserved, you should make plans to move it before that date. Google Sites is anticipated to be the most popular and appropriate alternative for users because it offers a more modern and user-friendly interface and unlimited capacity. To learn more about the features of Google Sites and other alternatives, and to identify which one best fits your needs, see the University’s Website Solution Selection Guide.

Peter Neumann


Holding doctorates in applied mathematics from Harvard and Darmstadt universities, Peter Neumann (pronounced "NOY-man") began working with computers in 1953, programming the U.S. Naval Ordnance Lab's IBM Card-Programmed Calculator. After completing his Ph.D. work, Neumann joined Bell Labs in 1960, becoming extensively involved in the MIT Multics project between 1965 and 1969. Neumann worked with Bob Daley to create the Multics file system design. In 1971, Neumann joined SRI International's Computer Science Lab, working on many notable projects including Provably Secure Operating System (PSOS). There he is currently a Senior Principal Scientist. His research interests at SRI include computer and network security, cryptographic applications, overall system survivability, fault tolerance, trustworthiness, and other related issues, such as election-system security.(1)(2)

Neumann remains active in the risk, security, and privacy communities, moderating the ACM Risks Forum,(3) and chairing the ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy. In 1976, he created the ACM SIGSOFT's Software Engineering Notes, and remains on the IEEE Security and Privacy board. Since 1982, Peter Neumann has participated in four National Academies studies: Multilevel Data Management Security (1983),(4) Computers at Risk (1991), Cryptography's Role in Securing the Information Society (1996), and Improving Cybersecurity for the 21st Century: Rationalizing the Agenda (2007). His 1995 book, Computer-Related Risks, remains pertinent today. Neumann has received numerous awards for his ongoing work in computer security, including a 2002 National Computer System Security Award, the 2005 ACM SIGSAC Outstanding Contributions Award, and the 2013 Computing Research Association Distinguished Service Award.(5)(6)
