Correspondence from Carl Landwehr  10/25/01



Colleagues and Friends,

I'm pleased to tell you that I've recently assumed the position of Director of the Trusted Computing program at the National Science Foundation. I am very happy to have the opportunity to help NSF build a strong, focused research program in this area, and I look forward to working with you and my other colleagues in government, academe, and industry to make this happen. Initially, this is a one-year appointment to help get the program started; I am on leave from my position as Senior Fellow with Mitretek Systems.

Let me first direct you to the initial announcement for the Trusted Computing program: The deadline for proposals is 5 December; if you are in a position to conduct research in this area, I encourage you to consider submitting a proposal. NSF focuses on funding research at universities and not-for-profit organizations. I also hope you will consider helping me staff the review panels for the proposals that are submitted.

My new contact information is provided below; please use this e-mail address for future correspondence.

Best regards,


Carl E. Landwehr
