There probably isn't one for the AS/400.  It's security is closer to a
single-level multi category security (discretionary access control).
Actually, I prefer to think of it as providing very good OLTP-based security
(per the Clark-Wilson model).

OS/390 MVS is really the only multi-level secure operating system in common
commercial use -- as long as you have RACF also.  Otherwise there are many
so-called "secure" UNIX variants that would meet the bill.
