Sigh .... Sorry to repeat myself, but ...
B2 DG/UX provides the basis for doing this. CYBERSHIELD, Oracle Web Server
and Open Market (OMI) Webservers and related product families (as well as
Mosaic, Apachee, etc.) run on B2 DG/UX. The various environments can be
isolated or intermixed, classes of data can be allowed in or out or
disallowed in or out, subnets can be isolated or restricted, (scores more
features but why list them again). Many organizations (both commercial and
gov't) are and will be using the platform in just such a manner (internal
web server, external web server, and firewall all on the same host or set
of hosts) NSA among them.
