The SeaView Secure Database System: A Progress Report

Teresa F. Lunt, Donovan Hsieh

Keywords :

Abstract : The SeaView project was a three-year project to design a multilevel database system to meet the requirements for Class A1 of the U.S. DoD Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria. We are currently in the middle of a new two-year project to build a prototype multilevel database system based on the SeaView design. The design utilizes existing database technology as well as a general-purpose trusted computing base (TCB). On this base we are building a layer of software to implement multilevel relations and to support user interaction through the MSQL language, which we have designed as an extension of the standard Structured Query Language (SQL).
