Steven Michael Bellovin,
an American computer scientist, researcher on computer networking, cryptography and security, and professor in the Computer Science department at Columbia University. He earned a BA degree from Columbia University in 1972, and managed an MSc. and Ph.D. in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and has been fellow at AT&T Labs Research.


From 1970 to 1971, as undergraduate student at Columbia, along with Aron Eisenpress, Andrew Koenig, and Ben Yalow, he co-authored the chess program CCCP, which competed at the ACM 1971, and was initially based on Hans Berliner's program J. Biit, which played one year before [2] [3]. Andrew Koenig on the individual roles of CCCP's programming team [4]:

I designed the overall structure of the program and coded much of the human interface. Steve wrote the tree searching and pruning routines, Ben did the move generation and evaluation routines, and Aron wrote the part of the human interface that made it possible to enter moves at a 2250 display with a light pen ...


Later, as graduate student, Steven Bellovin helped create the Usenet, along with Tom Truscott and Jim Ellis awarded with the 1995 Usenix Lifetime Achievement Award, known, appropriately enough, as "The Flame" [5] [6] .
