Professor Don Costello from UNL will speak at 10 a.m. on how reconnaissance cryptography from the Cold War plays a role in the future.

He helped found both the computing science department and information technology services at UNL. He has provided research or consultation services for the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, the United Nations, and the World Bank. In recent years, Costello has been assisting both local and international firms and e-commerce start-ups using his expertise in software engineering as they specify, contract, and build today’s mission critical systems.
