Clifford Stoll
Booknotes, Sunday, December 3, 1989
Clifford Stoll discusses The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage.

Clifford Stoll enthusiastically discussed his discovery and tracking of a West German computer spy who "broke" into his institution's computer network to access other networks throughout the U.S. In "The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage," Stoll details the story involving Markus Hess, who sold the stolen information from U.S. military networks to the Soviet Union before being caught and eventually indicted. Stoll's animated personality adds to the discussion of his background and views on computer crime. Between yo-yo tricks and sharing a favorite cookie recipe, he tells his experience of giving congressional testimony and of working with federal agents to track the spy. Now an expert in computer security, Stoll has spoken to many government agencies, universities and other organizations on the subject. (timspalding)… (more)
