As was mentioned many times, ``Orange book'' precludes networks, ``Red
Book'' covers networks. This is pretty clear so far.
Perhaps it might not be clear to some why this would be. In my mind, it
would be due to the fact that at one time multi-user computers tended to
sit in big, air-conditioned, locked rooms with many cables going out to
terminals here and there (what might actually be not too far from the
machine room). The machine is not on a network.
Today, the Internet, small computers and proliferation of LANs changes
that scene quite a bit.
