So there I sat, having a coffee with an IBM distinguished Engineer at SHARE Fort Worth — more on that later — when he mentions Homomorphic Encryption (H-E). Now, I have been a mainframer for over 40 years, a security specialist for over 25 years, and I had no clue what he was talking about!
IBM Master Inventor Jerry Stevens outlined in his SHARE Pittsburgh Best of the Best winning session, Getting the Most Out of OSA and HiperSockets with z/OS Communications Server, how enterprises could achieve those goals.
Beyond white papers, online groups, the archives project, and twice annual events, SHARE also has the in-depth knowledge of its past presidents. We caught up with a few of them to talk about their tenure in office and why they keep coming back to volunteer.
