Speaker: John McHugh - Dalhousie University in Halifax (Canada)
Title: Quality of Protection: Measuring the Unmeasurable?

CV: John McHugh left a position as senior member of the technical staff at CERT, part of the SEI at CMU to become the director of the new privacy and security lab at Dalhousie University. He was a professor and former chairman of the Computer Science Department at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon where he held a Tektronix Professorship. His research interests include computer security, software engineering, and programming languages. He has previously taught at The University of North Carolina and at Duke University. He has been an active researcher in the application of formal methods to the construction of dependable and secure systems for many years. He was the architect of the Gypsy code optimizer and the Gypsy Covert Channel Analysis tool.

Dr. McHugh received his PhD degree in computer science from the University of Texas at Austin. He has a MS degree in computer science from the University of Maryland, and a BS degree in physics from Duke University. He grew up in Durham, North Carolina, leaving when he graduated from Duke. Twenty years later, he returned, demonstrating that Thomas Wolfe was wrong. After another ten years in Durham, he moved to Portland, demonstrating, perhaps, that Wolfe knew what he was talking about after all.
