Gligor was born in Zalău, Romania where he earned a national scholarship to study in the United States. According to Gligor, his childhood in the "very controlled environment" of Romanian communism and the later authoritarian regime of Nicolae Ceauşescu informed his belief that "security cannot be an excuse for compromising individual and institutional freedom." He earned his B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California at Berkeley. He worked as a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland from 1976 until 2007. In 2008, he became a professor at Carnegie Mellon University where he is also co-Director of the University’s CyLab.
On December 6, 2005, Gligor received the 2006 National Information Systems Security Award from the United States National Security Agency. In 2013, he was given Technical Achievement Award by the IEEE Computer Society for his work in cryptography.
