Sun debuts Trusted Solaris 7

The Trusted Solaris 7 operating system from Sun Microsystems Inc. combines standard Solaris functions with strong access control.

Mandatory access control lets administrators label information at multiple sensitivity levels, said John F. Leahy III, acting director of marketing for Sun's federal division in McLean, Va.

Discretionary access controls impose restrictions via file permissions and optional lists based on user identity or group membership, Leahy said. The principle of least privilege divides administrative tasks among a number of people so no one of them has total control.

Trusted Solaris 7 for standalone Sparc workstations lists for $395; Intel users pay $695. Server pricing is not yet available.
