In 1980 Fred was a stalwart of the computer center. There he exhibited
great creativity, including the invention of "quest" for sniffing out
security lapses throughout the BTL computer network. His findings
underpinned the headline claim of the Labs' first computer-security
task force (1982), "It is easy and not very risky to pilfer data from
Bell Labs computers".
