NCSC Class B1 and C2 Security?

» close window

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.
Thanks, Ron

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
  and capabilities.
  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.
