On the July 3, 2016 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I have the privilege of having a conversation with Whitfield Diffie, the most recent winner of the $1,000,000 Turing Prize: the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for computing. Its nickname: "The Nerd Nobel." He is the architect of modern-day computer security. We'll talk about what it's really like to be a cryptographer, the steps he took toward his breakthrough achievement, and about Whit, the human being.
