The Secure UNIX Prototype Project has addressed the problem of defining a secure version of UNIX that preserves as many as possible of its desirable qualities completeness and simplicity of design, low cost, and an extensive amount of quality software. This report presents a prototype design for a Secure UNIX system based on security kernel technology previously developed. Author
