SGI TRUSTED IRIX OFFERS SECURE OS FOR GOV AND COM SECTORS.
Conformance to the LSPP provides confidence to military, government and commercial customers that Trusted IRIX uses strict access controls to information and clearly identifies user roles against unsecured access or activity. The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (or "Common Criteria") is a multinational successor to the previous Department of Defense Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (TCSEC or "Orange Book" criteria).
The requirements defined in the LSPP correspond to the TCSEC B1 security level. The requirements defined in the CAPP are consistent with the C2 security level specified by the TCSEC.
"SGI Trusted IRIX 6.5 and Standard IRIX 6.5 offer solid commercial-off-the-shelf, secure platforms, providing safeguards against internal and external threats that exceed protections available from other UNIX operating systems," said Casey Schaufler, Trusted Technology manager, SGI. "With their broad base of special and sensitive applications, cross-platform environments, high-performance capabilities, and security, SGI Trusted IRIX 6.5 and standard IRIX 6.5 are now positioned to become the standard, high-end security platforms for both the government and commercial sectors."
