Abstract:

This thesis presents an implementation of segment management for the security kernel of a secure archival storage system. The basis for this implementation is a family of secure, distributed, multi-microprocessor operating systems designed to provide multi-level internal computer security and controlled sharing of data among authorized users. This implementation provides address space management for individual processes, based on segmentation as a memory management scheme. Non-discretionary information security is provided through enforcement of a security policy based on a lattice structure that allows flexibility in representing different security policies the Department of Defense DoD security classification system is the security policy represented in this thesis. Implementation was completed on the ZILOG Z8000 micro-processor. Author
