IBM owned TCF and it was 100% screwed down into AIX.   The clean room team which did TNC used many of the ideas but tried to make it layered into 14 separate technologies so customer could pick and choose.   HP originally picked up the process technology but not the FS work.   DEC was the reverse.   Novell/Tandem took all it.  HP ended up with all the IP and in the end released it as FOSS.   Hence the OpenSSI project

Ah, OK. Thanks for the info. On the one hand, two bad. On the other hand,
it looks like a real patchwork quilt of technologies...
