Yes - I had a great enjoyable career. Despite what you may hear, I am the inventor of NSA's Trickler, I envisioned and was the lead engineer for the Audit Data Extraction Utility
(for insider threat detection), and I made the intelligent agent presentation to the ESSG that directly resulted in their vote
to acquire a Host-Based Security System (HBSS). For some older things, I also proposed and led the development for DISSA's web-based Connection Approval Process, plus,
along with Carl Landwher suggested a central repository for vulnerabilities be created on the web (NIST's CVE repository).
I supported Jeff Humphry in the development of IcePick, the world's first automated vulnerability detection tool (2 years before
SATIN), and my three patents in the telecommunications industry include the Solid State Telephone Interrupter, the Line Card Ring Generator,
and the Remote Disconnect System.
