Operating System Security (Synthesis Lectures on Information by Trent Jaeger

By Trent Jaeger

Working platforms give you the basic mechanisms for securing computing device processing. because the Sixties, working structures designers have explored tips on how to construct "secure" working platforms - working structures whose mechanisms safeguard the method opposed to a stimulated adversary. lately, the significance of making sure such defense has turn into a mainstream factor for all working platforms. during this ebook, we learn prior learn that outlines the necessities for a safe working approach and study that implements instance platforms that goal for such specifications. For method designs that aimed to meet those requisites, we see that the complexity of software program platforms usually ends up in implementation demanding situations that we're nonetheless exploring to this present day. notwithstanding, if a approach layout doesn't objective for reaching the safe working process standards, then its security measures fail to guard the approach in a myriad of how. We additionally research platforms which have been retrofit with safe working method positive factors after an preliminary deployment. In all instances, the clash among functionality on one hand and safety at the different results in tricky offerings and the possibility of unwise compromises. From this booklet, we are hoping that structures designers and implementors will study the necessities for working platforms that successfully implement protection and should larger know the way to regulate the stability among functionality and security.

Extra info for Operating System Security (Synthesis Lectures on Information Security, Privacy, and Trust)

Example text

We describe any formal means for verifying the complete mediation described above. 4. Tamperproof: How does the system protect the reference monitor, including its protection system, from modification? In modern systems, the reference monitor and its protection system are protected by the operating system in which they run. The operating system must ensure that the reference monitor cannot be modified and the protection state can only be modified by trusted computing base processes. 5. Tamperproof: Does the system’s protection system protect the trusted computing base programs?

6. Verifiable: What is basis for the correctness of the system’s trusted computing base? 3. The project’s goal was to minimize the Multics implementation as much as possible, such that most, if not all, of the TCB can be verified using manual auditing. This goal was not achieved by the completion of the Multics project, and in fact this limitation motivated the subsequent work in security kernels (see Chapter 6). As we will see in the next section, this resulted in some security problems in Multics.

Should any process in the TCB be compromised, it could undo protections at its ring level, thus potentially compromising the entire ring. If more-privileged rings contain any code that depends on trust in a less-privileged ring that is compromised, then the compromise may spread further. Thus, Multics tamper-protection is “securable” as Saltzer stated, but discretionary access control makes its tamperprotection brittle. See Chapter 7 to see why the use of discretionary access control is problematic.
