Hi

I would like to know if you know of a document where Windows 2000 security has been graded against the "Orange Book".

If not, does Microsoft provide the following sort of documentation with Windows 2000:

1. Security Features User's Guide
2. Trusted Facility Manual
3. Test Documentation
4. Design Documentation


Is their any other grading mechanism apart from the Orange Book, that I can use to grade Windows 2000.

Thanks

Zaid

It has been given the equivalent of a C-2 rating under the now obsolete Orange Book rating system. The new system is called the "Common Criteria".

A good discussion of it is given here:
