JOSEPH N. PATO, Chair, is a Distinguished Technologist at Hewlett-Packard’s HP Laboratories, where he serves as lab scientist for the Trusted Systems Lab (TSL) and manager for TSL’s Princeton research group. Previously he served as chief technology officer for Hewlett-Packard’s Internet Security Solutions Division. Since 1986, Mr. Pato has been involved in security research and development, spending much of his career studying authentication, identification, and privacy issues. Currently Mr. Pato is developing a research program that will analyze security issues in the health care industry. Mr. Pato’s current research focuses on the security needs of collaborative enterprises on the Internet, addressing both interenterprise models and the needs of lightweight instruments and peripherals directly attached to the Internet. Specifically, he is looking at critical infrastructure protection and the confluence of trust, e-services, and mobility. These interests have led him to look at the preservation of Internet communication in the event of cyberterrorism, trust frameworks for mobile environments, and how to apply privacy considerations in complex systems. His past work includes the design of delegation protocols for secure distributed computation, key exchange protocols, interdomain trust structures, the development of public- and secret-key-based infrastructures, and the more general development of distributed enterprise environments. Mr. Pato is also the founder of the IT-ISAC (IT Information Sharing and Analysis Center), where he also serves as a board member. Mr. Pato has participated on several standards or advisory committees of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), Department of Commerce, W3C, Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC), and Common Open Software Environment (COSE).
