01/31/2003 - Network Scientist/Entrepreneur John Shovic Joins EWU Faculty

Dr. John Shovic, recent winner of the TechNet Individual Catalyst Award for the Inland Northwest, has just joined the Eastern Washington University Computer Science faculty. Shovic's mission is to help establish programs in network systems and cyber security, as mandated by the $1 million TINE congressional grant to EWU. New courses under development in response to this grant include topics such as crypto analysis and the foundations of information theory, database security, secure practices in computing coding, network security, security issues in operating systems, and biometric applications to security.

Shovic, whose EWU office is at SIRTI on the Riverpoint campus, will teach his first regularly scheduled course this coming spring quarter. This will be a senior/graduate level course called "Network Security," and it will be taught in the evening at SIRTI. Shovic will also help design a new EWU three-course sequence in computer networking and network security, as well as assisting the quest for advanced network research projects and grants within EWU's new School of Computing and Engineering Sciences.

Shovic is a long time resident of the Inland Northwest. He held the Hewlett-Packard sponsored research faculty position in Electrical Engineering at the University of Idaho from 1984 until 1989, when he helped found Advanced Hardware Architectures (AHA). AHA (now AHA Comtech) is a software and hardware design company in Pullman. Then Shovic joined the Washington State University School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, where he was on the faculty and the director of the embedded systems lab. At WSU he also conducted extensive research in embedded systems computer security, distributed systems and in automated security protocol verification. He left WSU to found TriGeo Network Security, which is headquartered in the North Idaho Research Park in Post Falls. Dr. Shovic continues to serve as Chairman of the Board at TriGeo Network Security.

TriGeo develops and provides computer Security Information Management (SIM) software for business and institutional networks. TriGeo released its first commercial product in 2002.
