Abstract : The Department of Defense Computer Security Center (DoDCSC) has evaluated the security mechanisms of the Honeywell Secure Communications Processor (SCOMP) SCOMP Trusted Operating Program (STOP) Release 2.1. This evaluation was completed using the requirements of the Department of Defense Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (the Criteria) dated 15 August 1983. The DoDCSC has determined that the SCOMP STOP Release 2.1 satisfies all the requirements of the Criteria Class A1 and therefore SCOMP STOP Release 2.1 has been assigned a Class A1 rating. The Class A1 rating implies that the system provides mandatory (labeled) protection as well as discretionary (need-to-know) protection. The system does extensive auditing, and provides an unforgeable (trusted) communication path between the users and the system. The distinguishing characteristic of this class is the assurance derived from formal specification and verification of the security mechanisms. This class of systems has been subjected to extensive testing and all implementation flaws discovered during testing have been corrected. However, no guarantee is made that the system is free of all implementation flaws.
