"I found a citation in ""RFID Security and Privacy"" by Dirk Henrici. He quotes it like this:

Ronal E. Rivest, Whither Information
Security?, MIT Laboratory
for Computer Science, http://wean1.ulibdotorg/Lectures/Distinguished%20Lectures/2001/03.0%20Ronald%20L%20Rivest/6SLIDES/security.ppt, 2001.

The references section of Henrici's book can be found at the publisher's website (it's the ""Back Matter"" PDF). Unfortunately the quoted URL gives me a timeout.

Edit:

Here's the link Dana the Sane found: hopefully unmangled by the clever software behind this site: http://web.archivedotorg/web/20070623092825/http://wean1.ulibdotorg/Lectures/Distinguished+Lectures/2001/03.0+Ronald+L+Rivest/6SLIDES/security.ppt"
