Trusted or multilevel operating systems will be key to the future of cross-domain computing technologies so companies can separate applications and processes according to their clearance level, according to the chief technology officer at Raytheon Trusted Computer Solutions.
George Kamis told KMI Media Group in an article published July 19 the subsidiary of the Waltham, Mass.-based defense contractor also wants to store individual desktops in a cloud computing environment in order to help the military achieve its virtualization goals.
“We expand on that by not only allowing that to occur on a single class level but on multiple class levels. “With our trusted thin client product, we can give access to multiple cloud-based VMI environments at multiple sensitivity levels,” Kamis told KMI.
Kamis added RTCS brings together a Linux server operating system with security mechanisms in order to reserve information sharing for the trusted processor.
“We look at the data, inspect it, and perform file checks and other inspections before allow data to transverse the two different security levels.”
