DoD doesn't "certify" anything. It evaluates specific configurations
of hardware and software and will place those that meet the requirements on
the evaluated products list.
What are you looking for? B1 or B1 with workstation capabilities?
Pure B1 is a pretty isolated environment - you might want to look at the
various offerings in CMW (Compartmented Mode Workstation). Sun has one,
but I don't think it's done evaluation yet. DEC has one that is almost
through (DEC MLS+). I don't think HP is even working in that arena.
Part of the problem with stuff like CMWs is how you handle things
like X-window in a multi-level security environment. MLS+ has some pretty
cool things in it - for example if you have a document that is TS and
cut&paste into a document that is UC, it will automatically upgrade the
recipient document to TS.
Be careful who claims to be on the evaluated products list. If
someone says "we're CMW" or "we're B1" ask them if they are on the
evaluated products list.
