Sun Microsystems receives a security certificate

Tuesday, 11 June 2002, 3:14 PM EST

Sun Microsystems' "Trusted" Solaris 8 4/01 Operating Environment, considered the de facto standard for protecting classified and sensitive information, is the first and only operating system to receive the highest level of security certification under the Common Criteria Labelled Security Protection Profile (LSPP) at Evaluation Assurance Level 4 (EAL4).

According to Tarun Pranjivan, technology consultant at Sun Microsystems SA, Trusted Solaris is a Unix system designed for customers who require enhanced security and strong access control in a highly secure environment such as military, government, financial and e-commerce environments.

"In the common desktop environment, users can cut and paste between windows, but with Trusted Solaris every object in the system has access limitations. Even a Solaris systems administrator will not be able to access the information without prior clearance," explains Pranjivan.
