Profile: In the 1990s, Richard Clayton developed one of the earliest integrated dialup email systems for Windows. In 1995 his company was sold to Demon Internet, then the UK’s largest ISP, and he worked there until 2000 when he seized the opportunity to study for a PhD at the University of Cambridge. His thesis on “Anonymity and Traceability in Cyberspace” was submitted in 2005. He continues to consult for Demon, but currently works at Cambridge on the spamHINTS project, funded by Intel Research, seeking to detect email spam through traffic analysis of sampled sFlow packet data from the LINX Internet Exchange.
