Richard Kuhn (Primary Presenter), NIST, kuhn@nist.gov;
Rick Kuhn is a computer scientist in the Computer Security Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He has authored two books and more than 100 conference or journal publications on information security, empirical studies of software failure, and software assurance, and is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He co-developed the role based access control model (RBAC) used throughout industry and led the effort that established RBAC as an ANSI standard. Previously he served as Program Manager for the Committee on Applications and Technology of the President's Information Infrastructure Task Force and as manager of the Software Quality Group at NIST. Before joining NIST in 1984, he worked as a systems analyst with NCR Corporation and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. He received an MS in computer science from the University of Maryland College Park, and an MBA from William & Mary.

M Raunak (Co-Presenter), Loyola University Maryland, raunak@loyola.edu;
Dr. Mohammad Raunak is an Associate Professor of computer science at Loyola University Maryland, Baltimore, MD. He earned his M.S. and Ph.D. from University of Massachusetts Amherst under the supervision of Prof. Lee Osterweil, a pioneer in software process research. Dr. Raunak's research area is software engineering, specifically, verification and validation of software systems. His research interest includes developing and measuring test approaches for 'difficult-to-test' programs such as cryptographic functions, simulation model validation, as well as software and other human-centric process modeling and analysis. He regularly teaches software engineering and software testing at Loyola. During his recent sabbatical in 2016-17, Dr. Raunak worked as a guest researcher in the computer security division of National Institute of Standards and Technology.
