Steve Crocker joined Trusted Information Systems, Inc. in 1986 and is a vice president. He set up TIS' Los Angeles office and ran it until summer 1989 when he moved to the home office in Maryland. At TIS his primary concerns are program verification research and application, integration of cryptography with trusted systems, network security, and new applications for networks and trusted systems.
He was at the Aerospace Corporation from 1981-86 as Director of the Information Sciences Research Office which later became the Computer Science Laboratory. The research program at Aerospace included networks, program verification, artificial intelligence, applications of expert systems, and parallel processing.
From 1974-81 he was a researcher at USC's Information Sciences Institute, where he focused primarily on program verification. From 1971-74 he was a program manager at DARPA/IPTO, responsible for the research programs in artificial intelligence, automatic programming, speech understanding, and some parts of the network research. He also initiated an ambitious but somewhat ill-fated venture called the National Software Works.
From 1968-71 he was a graduate student in the UCLA Computer Science Department. While there he initiated the Network Working Group, arguably the forerunner of the IETF and many related groups around the world, and helped define the original suite of protocols for the Arpanet. He also initiated the Request for Comments (RFC) series. A short description of the events of that era are contained in RFC 1000.
He was a graduate student in the MIT AI Lab for a year and a half in 1967-68, and an undergraduate at UCLA for a long time before that.
