The MLS LAN Secure Network Server System (SNSS)is a network component which can support simultaneous transmission of digital data and analog video within a local area. SNSS comprises multiple Secure Network Servers (SNSs) connected by a transmission medium (e.g., Ethernet) and provides communications between attached devices (hosts, terminals etc.) operating at different sensitivity levels. Terminals are attached to an SNS terminal device interface card which performs user identification and authentication, access control and audit functions. A terminal user may connect to hosts on the network according to mandatory and discretionary access control. SNSS uses a distributed approach to network management.
