Lorenzo D. Martino is a Continuing Lecturer in Computer Sciences and at the Cyber Center at Purdue University. Before joining Purdue, he was senior researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Milano (Italy). At the University of Milano he coordinated a research team working in European Community funded projects, including the TrustCom research project (http://www.eu-trustcom.com/ ) which investigated Trust Negotiation techniques and Security Policies for Virtual Organizations. He has more than 20 years of experience in computer and information technology in various technical and managerial roles. His industrial experience includes software product development at computer technology manufacturers, and the development, integration and service management of critical solutions in large corporate financial environments. In the early 80’ while at Olivetti (an Italian computer manufacturer), he participated at development of one of the earliest relational data base management system (the Olivetti ODEX relational data base management system). His previous research addressed multimedia object-oriented distributed systems and security for virtual organizations. Professor Martino currently teaches and conducts research in the area of security and Web services.
