From the Cyber Security Hall of Fame page:

Designed SSL3 cryptographic elements

"Paul Kocher designed the cryptographic elements of SSL3 back in the mid-1990s, while still an undergraduate at Stanford, thereby gaining him an international reputation for allowing secure Internet transactions.

"The longevity of SSL3 is a testament to his brilliance, as is the fact that he is entirely self-taught in cryptography."
