Abstract:

One of the more important tasks that an operating system performs is the protection of programs and data from interference intentional or not by other programs. Recently it has been realized that it is also desirable to protect a program from itself. A survey of techniques used to achieve this protection is presented. Works of Dennis and Van Horn, Graham, Lampson, Wulf, and Morris are discussed. Others are addressed more briefly. Author
