The Question is:
The question I have is reguarding security. I know that OpenVMS71 meets the
governments C2 requirements. However, I need to know what is needed to make
OpenVMS71 B1 compliant. I saw that it was an option for 7.1. Any help would
be greatly appreciated.
The Answer is :
OpenVMS targets NCSC Class C2 features and capabilities, and specific
OpenVMS releases have been formally evaluated as being NCSC Class C2
compliant while other OpenVMS releases provide NCSC Class C2 features
OpenVMS with the SEVMS package installed targets NCSC Class B1 security
compliance, and specific releases have been formally evaluated as NCSC
Class B1 compliant while other releases have NCSC Class B1 features and
capabilities. (SEVMS is available only for specific versions of OpenVMS.)
NCSC Class C2 is discretionary security, while NCSC Class B1 provides
mandatory access control (non-discretionary) security features.
