Multi-Level Security for Security Challenges

For government agencies, information security is more vital than ever. Dependence on IT systems and networked operations, while maintaining the ability to collaborate across widely distributed resources, is increasing at nearly every level. This demand for secure, highly-available data systems has lead to advancements in traditional information security methods such as Multi-Level Security (MLS).

MLS solutions ensure data is maintained to the strictest confidentiality standards, while also allowing it to flow between security classifications as needed to ease communication and collaboration. MLS solutions achieve this by integrating a trusted operating system on a secure hardware stack for increased security or “hardening” of the total solution.

Silicon Mechanics is ready to help you benefit from a hardened hardware infrastructure. Our SELinux certified engineers and expertise with HPC clusters and advanced compute systems can help you streamline the architecture, build, and deployment of an MLS-ready system, and ensure that your organization is prepared for secure and efficient operation.

MLS Benefits

MLS solutions allow data with different security classifications to coexist within one unified system, while still meeting strict federal security requirements. By giving security administrators a high degree of flexibility to configure read and write permissions, the right type of data access can be securely provided to the right users, without the need to create independent data silos for each security level.

An MLS solution can also help to ensure data integrity in environments where collaboration and frequent sharing of information are necessary. By enabling different users access to common storage resources, data is protected from human error or malicious modification, but still ensures critical government decision making processes are based on correct information. A well-implemented MLS solution can also streamline the security inspection process, ensuring accurate audit trails, and maximum transparency and accountability.
  • Simplify command and control of data integrity and reliability across multiple security classifications within secure compute environments
  • Eliminate redundant copies of data or resource silos
  • Facilitate secure data sharing and efficient collaboration
  • Consolidate security auditing for greater accountability
