Falde said, a final evaluation report will be issued by the NSA's National Computer Security Center (NCSC) and Trusted UNICOS is now included in the Evaluated Products List (EPL).
Because network connections are vital for using Cray Research systems, Falde said, evaluating Trusted UNICOS as a network component ensures that a Trusted UNICOS system can maintain its B1 MDIA rating when integrated into a heterogeneous network trusted computing base (NTCB).
Along with features that meet the B1 MDIA requirements, Trusted UNICOS provides functional aspects of higher-level requirements, including B3 discretionary access control (DAC), B2 trusted facility management, and A1 trusted distribution, Falde said.
Trusted UNICOS is available now on CRAY Y-MP Model E, CRAY C90, CRAY M90, and CRAY EL systems.
We are impressed with the way the quality and reliability of UNICOS has increased with each new release, as well as the variety of tools and utilities available in UNICOS 7.
The UNICOS 7 operating system continues to lead the industry in multiprocessing capabilities through its Autotasking component, which automatically distributes and concurrently executes a program on all of the central processing units (CPUs) of the system, significantly speeding problem-solving.
UNICOS 7 software contains several new tools to increase the productivity of end users, programmers and system managers.
Cray Research has more than 350 systems installed worldwide, more than 90 percent of which currently operate the UNICOS operating system.
