Trent previously worked at IBM Research Watson from 1996 to 2005, when he joined Penn State. While at IBM Research, Trent was active in the Linux community, particularly in contributing code and tools for the Linux Security Modules (LSM) framework (in Linux 2.6) and for integrating the SELinux/LSM with IPsec (called Labeled IPsec, available in Linux 2.6.18 and above). Trent also worked on virtual machine systems (Xen reference monitor sHype), trusted computing (Linux Integrity Measurement Architecture and variants), and microkernels (L4 and systems built on it).
