Computer Security since the 1960’s with Peter Neumann

May 22, 2007

The 14th episode of The Silver Bullet Security Podcast features Peter Neumann, designer of the Multics OS file system, moderator of comp.RISKS, and Principal Scientist at the SRI Computer Science Laboratory. In this show, Gary and Peter discuss the most important changes in computer security since the 1960s, the discipline involved in early Multics engineering (“nodody writes a line of code without the approving authorities [having] read and understood the specification”), why DRM is the “wrong solution to the wrong problem,” and who was more interesting to meet: Albert Einstein or Norah Jones.
