He designed SHODAN as a semi-intelligent self-sufficient data network that could carry out routine duties aboard space stations, guided by an intricate series of logic and morale programs, and a personality that would allow it to challenge station decisions that affected its functions. The guidance software had security platforms so that SHODAN's own programming protected its self-governing capabilities. He worked closely with Chauncy McDaniel for this.
While SHODAN threatened Earth, he worked with Rebecca Lansing and managed to scramble their messages and send several through to the station for the Hacker. He sent some information to him about the layout of the Bridge.
