Abstract:

In order to avoid the development of the entire conceptual design of a multilevel secure electronic mail application, an approach is taken to develop the design through the integration of multilevel security features into an existing conceptual design. The conceptual design of the electronic mail application of the Integrated Software System ISS is used as the source of application-specific functions. Thus the aim of the thesis is the conceptual design of those features which would make the ISS electronic mail application multilevel secure. The first section of the thesis explores those issues and areas of work which impact on the design of the security features. The second section develops the conceptual design of the security features. During the design, the author establishes the attributes necessary to support multilevel secure access mediation, defines a modularization which supports and enhances security, and defines the user interface required by the modularization. Originator-supplied keywords include computer security, and Relational Data base model.
