His research interests are in all areas of cryptography, and computer and systems security with a specific interest in phishing and new hetremorphic attacks. He has written tens of papers, led panels, and given invited talks in fields ranging from Cryptography and Computer Security to Distributed Systems and Probabilistic Combinatorics. He has held research grants as a PI and Co-PI from the NSF and DARPA. He co-edited the book ‘Phishing & Countermeasures: Understanding the Increasing Problem of Electronic Identity Theft’ with Markus Jakobsson (Wiley Press, 2007), the first and still only comprehensive academic text dealing with the subject of Phishing.
Steve Myers completed his PhD (2005) in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Professor Charles Rackoff. While completing his PhD he interned in the Mathematical Research division of Telcordia Technologies (formerly Belcore) doing work on secure cryptographic voting. Additionally, he worked for Echoworx Corp, an Internet startup focusing on providing usable and secure email solutions. He has consulted for a number companies and law firms on different topics related to cryptography and computer security, and is currently processing several patents related to his research.
