Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "OpenSolaris has launched a new project, Flexible Mandatory Access Control, to integrate the Flask/TE security scheme into their OS. This is the same underlying model implemented by SELinux, and follows other cross-platform Flask/TE integration projects such as SEDarwin and SEBSD. This is very exciting in terms of establishing compatible security across operating systems, particularly for Mandatory Access Control, which has traditionally been narrowly focused and generally incompatible. With FMAC, we're closer to seeing truly ubiquitous, cross-platform MAC security."

The Trusted Solaris extensions got integrated into Solaris with Solaris 10 Update 3.

I know this well because I had to fix the Solaris OpenAFS client driver because it directly molested a cred_t and the TS integration changed the size of that Private struct, and that broke binary compatibility in OpenAFS driver. ddi_cred(9F) to the rescue... that's what OpenAFS should have used in the first place.

Yes, Method needs to get his/her sources straight. Binarycrusader is correct. "Trusted Solaris" ceased being a separate product and its functionality was folded into Solaris 10 proper. This is why you don't see a "Trusted Solaris 10" product... because it is Solaris 10.
