Abstract:

This report studies the architecture requirements for a Secure Communications Processor intended to serve both as a front end and a remote communications processor for the secure Multics system being developed under Project Guardian. The security issues are addressed through the reference monitor concept based on the mathematical model of security developed at MITRE. The reference monitor must provide completeness, isolation and certifiability. This report addresses the architectural features needed to support these properties and also addresses implementation issues including speed and reliability of the resultant processor. Author
