The security field, as we mean it here in IEEE S&P, is both new and old. It is new in the spectacular sense of a positive feedback loop; everything in the computer world is itself designed by computers and thus everything grows geometrically, not just chip density by way of Moore's Law. The best technology transfer is a human brain on legs. When a new field coalesces out of varied practitioners from other fields, the sum of that technology transfer reaches a maximum. Such is happening with the security field.
