Dr. Roger R. Schell


Dr. Roger R. Schell is a retired U.S. Air Force Colonel who is one of the foremost contributors to and authorities on "high assurance" computer security. Returning to the Air Force in the early 1970s after completing his Ph.D. in Computer Science at MIT, he was responsible for developing the concepts of a secure kernel (a small portion of an operating system) and reference monitor to achieve secure systems that adhered to a proven mathematical model for security. During the early to mid-1970s Schell led a $9 million research effort for the Air Force to further research and implementation of these concepts, including overseeing the contract work of MITRE's David E. Bell and Leonard LaPadula that resulted in the influential Bell-LaPadula Model. He led "Tiger Team" Air Force efforts to penetrate Honeywell-Multics, which resulted in security enhancement of this system.(1)

In the early 1980s, following several years of service as an associate professor of Computer Science at Naval Postgraduate School, Dr. Schell was named founding Deputy Director of the Department of Defense (now National) Computer Security Center (NCSC), located at the National Security Agency (NSA). He oversaw the expansion of this center from an initial staff of 34 to more than 150 computer security professionals. For the NCSC, Dr. Schell provided senior technical direction for the Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (TCSEC, commonly known as "The Orange Book") that established national standards for computer manufacturers. In the mid-1980s he co-founded Gemini Computers which became a leader in the manufacture of the hardware and software for some of the world's most secure computer systems. He received the NIST/NSA National Computer System Security Award, the nation's most prestigious award in the computer security field.(2)
