On this week's "Geek of the Week,"
Carl Malamud interviews John Romkey, author of numerious
protocol stacks and recently named to the cast of "IAB: The Next
Generation." In this wide-ranging interview, Romkey talks about
the role of security in the Internet, the PGP versus PEM controversy,
and export control policies that leave RSA algorithms patented in
the US but available for anonymous FTP in Finland. Romkey also
discusses the role of SNMP in ToasterNet and we learn why his
garage is full of burnt Eggos and how he incurred the wrath of
the Waffle Union.
In this week's Ask Dr. SNMP, Dr. Jeff Case lets loose on a
Journalist from Jupiter (aren't they all) and his inane inquiries
about the future of SNMP Version 3.
This week, the Internet Multicasting Service is proud to
present an exclusive interview with the author of the Generic
Ultimate Protocol (GUP). GUP slices and dices at any layer of
the protocol stack. This distinguished scientist, fearing the
wrath of protocol designers around the world, has asked us to
use a computer-synthesized version of his or her voice to protect
his or her identity.
