Whitepaper: Windows and SuSE Linux EAL4+ Workload Comparison: An Examination of Server Role Capabilities of EAL4+ Evaluated Software

by Dickerson TechnologiesJan 01, 2008

This paper examines two operating systems, both certified at Evaluation Assurance Level EAL4+ and meeting the same Common Access Protection Profile for operating systems, to determine differences in practical capabilities based upon the evaluated configurations. In this paper, it was found that the software included in the Microsoft evaluated configurations provides the capabilities to build and utilize several common server roles, while the Novell SuSE evaluation seems to lack key necessary packages for those same common roles.
