Carl Landwehr named IEEE Fellow

Former Institute for Systems Research (ISR) Senior Research Scientist Carl Landwehr has been named a 2013 Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) “for contributions to cybersecurity.” ISR is an institute within the A. James Clark School of Engineering.

Landwehr is a noted expert in trustworthy computing, including high assurance software development, understanding software flaws and vulnerabilities, token-based authentication, system evaluation and certification methods, multilevel security, and architectures for intrusion tolerant systems. He served ISR from 2003 to his retirement in 2012.

In 2009 he was named director of the Trustworthy Computing Program at the National Science Foundation, within the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate, a position he held until 2011. Prior to this position, he was on assignment with IARPA as the program leader for Safe and Secure Operations from 2007–2009. He also worked in the Disruptive Technology Office as a division chief responsible for funding research in cybersecurity. He previously served the National Science Foundation as coordinator of the Cyber Trust theme in the CISE Directorate. He began his work at NSF while a Senior Fellow with Mitretek Systems, where he also led support for several DARPA programs in Information Assurance and Survivability. For many years, he headed the Computer Security Section of the Center for High Assurance Computer Systems at the Naval Research Laboratory, where he led numerous research projects to advance technologies of computer security and high-assurance systems.

Landwehr chaired an international defense research committee concerned with trustworthy computing, founded IFIP WG 11.3 (Database and Application Security) and is also a member of IFIP WG 10.4 (Dependability and Fault Tolerance). He received Best Paper awards from the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy and the Computer Security Applications Conference. IFIP awarded him its Silver Core, and the IEEE Computer Society awarded him its Golden Core, as well as two Distinguished Service Awards. In addition, the Association for Computing Machinery’s (ACM) Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control (SIGSAC) gave Landwehr its Outstanding Contribution Award for “significant contributions to the field of computer and communication security through fostering research and development activities, educating students, and providing professional services such as the running of professional societies and conferences."

Landwehr is a former editor-in-chief of IEEE Security and Privacy, a publication of the IEEE Computer Society. He also served on the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, the Journal of Computer Security, and the High Integrity Systems Journal.
