Department of Trade and Industry, Information Technology Security Evaluation Criteria ( ITSEC )
Abstract: Following extensive international review version 1.2 of the ITSEC is issued, with the approval of the (informal) EC advisory group, SOG-IS (Senior Officials Group - Information Systems Security), for operational use within evaluation and certification schemes, for a provisional period of two years from the date of issue. The practical experience acquired will be used to review and further develop the ITSEC at the end of this period. In addition, considerations arising from further international harmonization will also be taken into account.

Abstract: This publication, is being issued by the National Computer Security Center (NCSC) under the authority of and in accordance with Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 5215.1. The guidelines described in this document provide a set of good practices related to the use of auditing in automatic data processing systems employed for processing classified and other sensitive information.

National Computer Security Center, A Guide To Understanding Discretionary Access Control In Trusted Systems
Abstract: The guidelines defined in this document are intended to be used by computer hardware and software designers who are building systems with the intent of meeting the requirements of the Department of Defense Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria, DoD 5200.28-STD.

European Commission, Green book on the Security of Information Systems v3.6
Abstract: European Strategic policy on Security for Information Systems. The "Green Book" represents an intermediate step towards the formulation of the Action Plan foreseen in the Council Decision. It is to state the main issues related to the security of information systems in its context. A deliberate effort has been made to present the subject matter in as objective a fashion as possible. By progressively widening the consultation in the preparation of the document the wish is, to obtain a representative and balanced view of the issues and the nature and implications of the options for action one may wish to consider.

Unknown, Foundations For The Harmonization of Information Technology Security Standards
Abstract: This paper is the first work product of Joint Task 1 (JT01) defined in the Joint Workplan for cooperation on Security of Information System [1]. This paper also provides a base for common understanding of critical terms and concepts. In addition, this paper looks at the terms and concepts used in the development of International Standards Organization(ISO) standards for Open System Interconnection(OSI)

European Commission, The Information Technology Security Evaluation Criteria (A related WWW homepage exists for this item)
Keywords: recommendations, european, criteria, evaluation
Abstract: The Information Technology Security Evaluation Criteria, more commonly known as the ITSEC, were formally endorsed by the European Council on 28 March 1995 in the form of a Recommendation. Originally published by the European Commission in June 1991, and subsequently used throughout Europe and elsewhere, these European Criteria provide a different approach to that of the US Orange Book whilst still retaining the essential requirement for an appropriate level of confidence to be achieved in the security features of the product or system under evaluation. The Recommendation also addresses the need for broader international harmonization of Criteria as well as the need for mutual recognition of the associated evaluation certificates.

Object Management Group, OMG Object Services RFP3
Abstract: The Object Management Group's central mission is to establish an architecture and set of specifications, based on commercially available object technology, to enable distributed integrated applications . Primary goals are the reusability , portability and interoperability of object-based software components in distributed heterogeneous environments.To this end, the OMG adopts interface and protocol specifications that define an Object Manage ment Architecture (OMA) that supports applications based on distributed interoperating objects.
