>Abstract of Talk.
>
>Viable human societies in general and businesses in particular have always
>required trust. Our dramatically growing dependence on information systems
>inescapably allocate more and more of this trust from humans to technology.
>Unfortunately, both accumulated experience and a growing body of
>expert opinion increasingly call into serious question whether it is
>responsible to place substantial trust in this technology at all,
>especially in the face of professional attacks. The good news is that the
>state of the science of information security is astonishingly rich with
>solutions and tools to incrementally and selectively solve the hard problems.
>The bad news is that the state of the actual application of science, and
>the general knowledge and understanding of the existing science,
>is lamentably poor. The challenge for scholars and practitioners is
>to aggressively work to remedy this before our professional efforts to
>expand the reach of technology becomes a recipe for disaster.
>
>About the Speaker.
>
>Roger R. Schell is co-founder and President of Aesec Corporation,
>a new company focused on verifiably secure platforms for secure,
>reliable e-business. He is internationally recognized as a major
>contributor to the advancement of computer security concepts and
>the overall definition of network security. At Novell, he led their
>Class C2 network evaluation and managed development of product security.
>He was VP for Engineering at Gemini Computers where he developed their
>highly secure (Class A1) commercial product. He served as the founding
>Deputy Director of the National Computer Security Center, which he grew
>into a respected organization of more than 150 security professionals.
>For his work there he is widely regarded as the žfatherÓ of the Trusted
>Computer System Evaluation Criteria (the žOrange BookÓ), which has been
>the most widely used international security standard for
>computers and networks.
>
>Dr. Schell originated several key modern security design and evaluation
>techniques and holds patents in cryptography and authentication.
>He participated in sponsored žtiger teamÓ penetration tests of several
>commercial and security enhanced operating systems and networks for
>various government activities including the Defense Intelligence Agency,
>the U. S. Air Force, the Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and
>the Central Intelligence Agency. He has more than 60 publications, and
>was Associate Professor of Computer Science at the Naval Postgraduate School.
>The NIST and NSA recognized him with the 1991 National Computer
>System Security Award, the nation's highest honor in the computer security
>field. Dr. Schell is a retired USAF Colonel. He received
>a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the MIT, an M.S.E.E.
>from Washington State, and a B.S.E.E. from Montana State.

>(1) From Highway 101 North & South:
>Take the Embarcadero Road exit west toward Stanford. At El Camino Real,
>Embarcadero turns into Galvez Street as it enters the university.
>Stay in the left lane and continue toward the center of campus.
>Turn right onto Campus drive and take it past the Hospital
>(about a mile); just after it makes a hard right, turn left onto
>Via Ortega. Just before the end of Via Ortega there is a parking
>structure on the right; park in the structure
>and walk along Via Ortega and turn right onto Serra.
>Walking along the Serra(you will pass David Packard EE building)
>Continue to walk you will see
>The MAIN QUAD on your right (and the Oval will be on your left)
>The first entrance (the first right hand door viewing from Oval)
>
>(2) From Highway 280 North & South:
>Exit Sand Hill Road east toward Stanford. Continue east, turning right at
>the traffic light on Santa Cruz Avenue. Make an immediate left onto Junipero
>Serra Boulevard. Turn left at the first stoplight, Campus Drive West.
>Make a right turn onto Panama St., just after Campus Drive West bends
>to the right, and turn left when you reach Via Ortega
>Just before the end of Via Ortega there is a parking
>structure on the right; park in the structure
>and walk along Via Ortega and turn right onto Serra.
>Walking along the Serra(you will pass David Packard EE building)
>Continue to walk you will see
>The MAIN QUAD on your right (and the Oval will be on your left)
>The first entrance (the first right hand door viewing from the Oval)
>
>(3) From El Camino Real:
>Exit El Camino Real at University Avenue. Turn toward the hills
>(away from the center of Palo Alto). As you enter Stanford, University
>Avenue becomes Palm Drive. The MAIN QUAD is at the end of
>the Palm drive. The rooom is at the right hand side corner of the MAIN QUAD.
