Research Triangle Park, North Carolina

Andy Huber has worked as a software developer and manager in industry for over 30 years. He first programmed a computer while attending a National Science Foundation summer program at Illinois Institute of Technology on Fortran programming as a high school junior. He currently designs and develops software for network security systems, including hardware that does IP security (IPSec) processing as packets flow through the device. For many years, he developed operating systems for hardware ranging from mini-computers to symmetric multi-processors. He has contributed to several software standards, including the Posix standards. His technical interests include operating systems, networks, security, software engineering, and improving software development.

Andy has bachelor’s, master’s, and engineering degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he worked on the Multics operating system. He is a member of the ACM and the IEEE Computer Society, and is an IEEE Certified Software Development Professional. He has served as a reviewer for Computing Reviews for over 20 years.

When not working, Andy enjoys many outdoor activities, including running, biking, swimming, and the sport of orienteering (running through the woods to find a set of control flags using a compass and topographic map). He also enjoys bird watching and music, and serves as a volunteer classical music announcer on WCPE, a 24-hour-a-day listener-supported radio station that is also broadcast on the Internet.
