The wide use of computers in military and defense installations has long necessitated the application of security rules and regulations. A basic principle underlying the security of computer systems has traditionally been that of isolation-simply removing the entire system to a physical environment in which penetrability is acceptably minimized. First, the security problem is not unique to any one type of computer system or configuration it applies across the spectrum of computational technology. Secondly, resource-sharing systems, where the problems of security are admittedly most acute at present, must be designed to protect each user form interference by another user or by the system itself, and must provide some sort of privacy protection to users who wish to preserve the integrity of their data and their programs.
