This is a list of operating systems specifically focused on security. Operating systems for general-purpose usage may be secure without having a specific focus on security.[1]

Similar concepts include security-evaluated operating systems that have achieved certification from an auditing organization, and trusted operating systems that provide sufficient support for multilevel security and evidence of correctness to meet a particular set of requirements.

Linux

Android-based


Debian-based

Fedora-based

Gentoo-based

Other Linux distributions

BSD-based

SELinux module

Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is a module that may be incorporated into a Linux distribution.

Object-capability systems

This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (January 2018)

These operating systems are all engineered around the object-capabilities security paradigm. Instead of the system deciding if an access request should be granted, the bundling authority and designation decides.

Solaris-based
