This level of trust is mandated for use by U.S. government agencies and also is valued by commercial enterprises with extremely sensitive data to manage and protect.
AIX 5300-05-02 was certified by the Bundesamt f??r Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI). IBM and Innovative Security Systems, Inc. dba Argus Systems Group were developers for the evaluated product. IBM sponsored the evaluation effort.
