Guidelines for Writing Trusted Facility Manuals   [open pdf - 115KB]

A Trusted Facility Manual (TFM) is one of the documents necessary to satisfy the requirements of any class in the TCSEC. The TFM is directed towards the administrators of an installation, and its goal is to provide detailed, accurate information on how to (1) configure and install a specific secure system, (2) operate the system in a secure manner, (3) make effective use of the system privileges and protection mechanisms to control access to administrative functions and databases, and (4) avoid pitfalls and improper use of the administrative functions that would compromise the Trusted Computing Base (TCB) and user security.
