The Gemini Multiprocessing Secure Operating System (GEMSOS) was developed at Gemini Computers in conjunction with its Gemini Trusted Network Processor (GTNP) computer hardware product. Founded in 1981 by Tien Fan Tao of the Naval Postgraduate School, and Roger Schell of the Department of Defense Computer Security Center (DODCSC), Gemini Computers sought to develop a family of high-assurance computer systems. In 1985, the National Computer Security Center (NCSC), formerly known as the DODCSC, joined Gemini in the GEMSOS project.(1) GEMSOS was designed as a high-performance, high-assurance multiprocessor architecture, becoming the only general-purpose kernel to earn the NSA A1 class certification. The GEMSOS kernel was used in the BLACKER wide-area network encryption system, which likewise earned the TCSEC A1 certification. Aesec acquired Gemini Computers in 2003, including the GEMSOS security kernel.(2)(3)
