    About the Author

    Frank Adelstein has been working with computers for over 20 years. His research interests are broad, and include mobile computing, wireless communication, real-time networking, and computer security. Dr. Adelstein holds a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from The Ohio State University. He held a postdoctoral research position with the Cornell Computer Science Department, working with the Xerox Design Research Institute. Currently, he is a Senior Principal Scientist with ATC-NY (formerly Odyssey Research Associates), and has been with them since 1999. While there, his work has focused on computer security, ranging from computer forensics, and intrusion detection, to red-teaming and penetration testing. He is a GIAC certified forensic analyst. In his "copious free time," he enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, doodling, and flying around the Finger Lakes region of New York State. He holds a commercial pilot's license for land and sea planes.
