Mike Stone, CISSP
I was born in Columbus Ohio, USA, in 1947. I graduated from Ohio State University with a BA in Psychology.
I’ve had a love affair with computers ever since I got out of college. I’ve worked as a system programmer, an application developer, team manager, programmed IBM mainframes and communication controllers, whistled into acoustic couplers (pre-dated modems), patched paper tape with paper and tape, programmed Varian minicomputers, microcomputers, pc’s, unix, VAX/VMS, reverse engineered GW-Basic to shoehorn Hebrew right-to-left support, wrote a firmware loader and compiler to emulate an NCR RMC minicomputer on an NCR VRX mainframe, wrote a system and network management system for Stratacom WAN equipment, wrote an automated file transfer system between IBM DOS/VSE, Digital Ultrix (unix), and Novell-based pc’s, and introduced PKI digital signatures in the Israel and helped to make them official, consulted for the military. I retired in 2017. You may want to check out some of my great presentations at Mike Stone’s Slideshare Security Presentations.
I served in both the US Army and the Israeli Defense Forces. I moved to Israel in 1978 and live in Raanana. I am married and have three sons and five grandchildren.
P.S. (None of my posts here reflect the policies or opinions of any of the organizations for whom I’ve worked in any way whatsoever.)
