About this book


'...the most widely accepted set of criteria for computer security.' Financial Times The 'Orange Book' Series, produced by the American Department of Defense is as yet the only guide to effective computer security for both military and commercial sectors. These 17 documents provide a comprehensive set of guidelines both for people needing to introduce computer security measures and for companies developing secure computer systems and products. It contains details of the various security mechanisms that have been developed over time and the relevance of these to existing policies; how to test for an adequate implementation in a product and engineering techniques to be used as part of the assurance activities that form part of the product evaluation.
