Scott Rea

Scott Rea is the Director, Operating Authority, Higher Education Bridge Certification Authority (HEBCA).

Scott is a seasoned authority in the field of information security, designing, developing, operating and managing bridge Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) architectures and applications that use these infrastructures. He is frequently called upon to provide guidance on PKI-related topics to government and to commercial and educational organizations.

As director of the Operating Authority for HEBCA, he is responsible for overseeing the operations of the PKI-based identity federation serving universities and colleges throughout the United States. Mr. Rea is also the senior PKI architect at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. where he operates Dartmouth's campus-wide PKI, and a research associate for the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) at Dartmouth. Additionally, he is an independent consultant in the field of information security.

His current research is in the area of usable security, specifically as it relates to PKI. He is a contributor to the Internet Draft RFC for the PKI Resource Query Protocol (PRQP), currently on experimental track with Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). PRQP is a protocol that enables many services within federated PKIs, and it is expected to be published as an Internet standard in the near future.

A native of Australia now living in the United States, Mr. Rea holds an M.S. in Computer Science with a focus on Information Security and a double B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia.
