Abstract:

The National Computer Security Center NCSC examined the security protection mechanisms provided by Wangs MicroControl Version 1.0650 and 1.0660 MicroControl is a subsystem, not a complete trusted computer system. Therefore, it was evaluated against the Computer Security Subsystem Interpretation CSSI. Specifically, the applicable requirements for this evaluation included identification and authentication IA, discretionary access control DAC, and audit. Subsystems are designed to be installed on automatic data processing ADP systems. Specifically, subsystems are designed to add a level of assurance to an ADP system that has limited or ineffective security mechanisms. However, subsystems are not intended to protect information of an ADP system which processes classified information because subsystems may not be capable of maintaining the integrity of classified information.
