Since 1987, the Computer History Museum Fellow Awards have honored distinguished technology leaders who have forever changed the world with their accomplishments. Chosen on the basis of accomplishment, Fellows are nominated by the Museum's community and selected by a panel composed of Museum staff, historians, industry peers, and other Computer History Museum Fellows. This prestigious award recognizes each Fellow's role in the advancement of computing history, as well as the impact of their contributions. The Fellows have truly bettered our lives and our society. The Computer History Museum is proud to have a part in highlighting and preserving the stories of these esteemed technology heroes for future generations.

- Bill Joy for his work on the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) Unix system and the co-founding of Sun Microsystems
- The team of Whitfield Diffie, Martin Hellman and Ralph Merkle for their work on public key cryptography
