Comment: C2 Orange Book or Red Book? (Score 1) 628

by dave-fu (#13397346) Attached to: Building Secure Computers?
If they were going for an Orange Book, or standalone, certification, it would make sense to yank the IP stack (which would sort of be needed to achieve a Red Book, or networked, certification) off of the box. Or would removing all unneeded cruft from a box be counter-intuitive when you're hardening it? If this is so, can I get some security clearance so I can play nethack on a classified box? That would be SWEET.
Also, I thought the rumormongering consensus around here was that Microsoft "borrowed" its IP stack from the reference BSD implementation?
