Multi Level Security / LSPP Overview

The MLS functionality in SE Linux is being developed as part of the Common Criteria LSPP certification work. The LSPP work aims to get LSPP , RBAC , and CAPP certification at EAL 4+

This link from James Morris blog has a lot of background information on the LSPP work.

  • MCS Policy - MCS is based on the same kernel features so much of the MLS development work applies to it. Also as MCS will be vastly more popular than MLS it's expected that many applications will get support for MCS which can then be used for MLS at a later time.
