Few areas of computing capture more headlines today than cybersecurity. Yet, with few exceptions, historians have barely scratched the surface of the rich history of computer security (beginning with time-sharing in the 1960s) due in large part to lack of relevant archival and other source materials. This issue is the first of two Annals special issues publishing revised papers from the National Science Foundation’s Computer Security History Workshop, which gathered historians and pioneers at the Charles Babbage Institute in July 2014. It markedly advances scholarship on many different critical aspects of computer security history.
