Appendix F. About the Author

David A. Wheeler

David A. Wheeler is an expert in computer security and has long specialized in development techniques for large and high-risk software systems. He has been involved in software development since the mid-1970s, and been involved with Unix and computer security since the early 1980s. His areas of knowledge include computer security, software safety, vulnerability analysis, inspections, Internet technologies, software-related standards (including POSIX), real-time software development techniques, and numerous computer languages (including Ada, C, C++, Perl, Python, and Java).

Mr. Wheeler is co-author and lead editor of the IEEE book Software Inspection: An Industry Best Practice, author of the book Ada95: The Lovelace Tutorial, and co-author of the GNOME User's Guide. He is also the author of many smaller papers and articles, including the Linux Program Library HOWTO.

Mr. Wheeler hopes that, by making this document available, other developers will make their software more secure. You can reach him by email at (no spam please), and you can also see his web site at
