|Abstract: ||Having reliable security in systems is of the utmost importance.
However, the existing framework of writing, distributing
and linking against code in the form of libraries
and/or modules does a very poor job of keeping track of
who has access to what code and who can call what function.
The status-quo is insufficient for a variety of reasons. As
the amount of code written that represents some kind of a
rights-protected entity increases, we need a systematic, easily
adopted framework for designating who has access to
what code, and under which conditions.
While adding access controls to libraries and modules
(as well as functions held securely within them), we also
give regard to the performance characteristics and ease-ofuse
considerations. In this vein, we discuss the design and
implementation of a framework (called SecModule) used
for generating (and using) libraries under access controls,
as well as performance measurements of invoking functions
that are held inside the protected library.|
