LAST FEBRUARY, Red Hat and Oracle jointly announced (C|NET) cooperation to obtain Common Criteria (CC) certification for the Red Hat Advanced Server
operating system and the Oracle 9i Release 2 database running on that platform. But at LinuxWorld last week, IBM and SuSE revealed their achievement
(LWN) of CC Enterprise Assurance Level 2+ (EAL2+) certification first, with SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 on the IBM xSeries platforms, thus beating
Red Hat and Oracle to this critical security milestone.
