National Computer Security Center


The National Computer Security Center (NCSC) was established in 1981 as the Department of Defense Computer Security Center. It changed to its current name in 1985, and was subsequently moved to the NSA. It was established to test and evaluate computer equipment for use in high security and confidential applications.(1)(2) Working with industry, education, and government agency partners, the NCSC promotes research and standardization efforts to promote secure information system development. Standards established in the NCSC are used both in the United States government, and among independent companies. These standards benefit individual consumers, as they are disseminated through government and other organizations to promote and improve security product quality.(3) The NCSC is best known for releasing the first Department of Defense Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (TCSEC) in 1983, which was reissued in 1985. Known as the "Orange Book," the TCSEC provided manufacturers with security-related standards for products, and security metrics for the evaluation of trust levels for products used for processing sensitive material.(4)(5)
