Based on the only Linux operating system in the world with a Common Criteria EAL4 Labeled Security Protection Profile (LSPP).

NetTop2 – Thin Client is a software product that can run on all industry standard hardware platforms. The current versions are being deployed on the powerful IBM xSeries servers with Wyse Technology V50™ thin clients as appliances. IBM Platforms are the official Target Operating Environment (TOE) for the Common Criteria Evaluation of the trusted Linux that underlies NetTop2 – Thin Client. Wyse thin clients are the industry and market share leader in the thin client appliance market.

Under a Patent License Agreement with the National Security Agency (NSA), TCS now offers a ”thin client” version of the NSA-patented NetTop technology. Working with NSA Researchers under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), TCS developers have created a new standard for performance, cost effectiveness and security.

NetTop2 – Thin Client puts trusted Linux technology on the desktop, enabling users to access multiple independent networks, and by extension, multiple Microsoft® Windows and Unix® sessions at differing sensitivity levels or domains using a single thin client appliance. By pushing the trust out to the edge of the solution, NetTop2 allows a much lower cost and less complex back-end infrastructure than other thin client approaches. In addition, NetTop2 takes the proprietary aspects out of the operating system and hardware layers. Unlike other solutions, NetTop2 does not require proprietary hardware, or a single vendor, proprietary operating system.

SecureOffice NetTop2 – Thin Client is available immediately for pilot testing, and includes the full security functionality of a trusted Linux operating system that is today under Common Criteria evaluation on a wide range of IBM eServer Platforms including xSeries, pSeries, and ZSeries. General availability for NetTop2 – Thin Client is expected at the end of this year.
