Multi-Level Secure Local Area Network is a cost effective, multi-level, easy to use office environment leveraging existing high assurance technology. The Department of Defense and U.S. Government have an identified need to securely share information classified at differing security levels. Because there exist no commercial solutions to this problem, NPS is developing a MLS LAN. The MLS LAN extends high assurance capabilities of an evaluated multi-level secure system to commercial personal computers (PCs) running commercial operating systems and office productivity software by using a Trusted Computing Base Extension (TCBE). The TCBE is intended to provide trusted path and object reuse supporting services to the network TCB.
