Factors Affecting Distributed System Security
February 1987 (vol. 13 no. 2)
pp. 233-248
D.M. Nessett, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, University of California
Recent work examining distributed system security requirements. is critiqued. A notion of trust based on distributed system topology and distributed system node evaluation levels proposed in that work is shown to be deficient. The notion fails to make allowances for the distributed system physical security environment, security factors related to the management of distributed systems by more than one jurisdictive authority, and the interactions that can occur between nodes supporting different mandatory and discretionary security mechanisms.
