Whit Diffie and Marty Hellman published "New Directions in Cryptography" in 1976. It introduced a new method of cryptographic key distribution now known as the Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange and stimulated interest in and development of asymmetric key algorithms.

Inducted into the (US) National Cyber Security Hall of Fame 2012 http://www.cybersecurityhalloffame.com/

From the Cyber Security Hall of Fame page:

"Professor Emeritus - Stanford University"

"Professor Hellman is best known for his invention, with Diffie and Merkle, of public key cryptography. In addition to many other uses, this technology forms the basis for secure transactions on the Internet. 

"He has also been a long-time contributor to the computer privacy debate, starting with the issue of DES key size in 1975 and culminating with service (1994-96) on the National Research Council's Committee to Study National Cryptographic Policy, whose main recommendations have since been implemented."
