Mark Miller reports on a nice easy article from HP Labs. A must read!
Check out the current cover story on the HP Labs web page!
Research on how to do safe operating systems is concentrated in the capabilities field, and this article worth reading to get the flavour. The big challenge is to how to get capabilities thought into the mainstream product area, and the way the team has chosen to concentrate on securing Microsoft Windows programs has to be admired for the chutzpah!
Allegedlly, they've done it, at least in lab conditions. Can they take the capabilities and POLA approach and put it into the production world? I don't know but the research is right up there at the top of the 'watch' list.Posted by iang at June 10, 2005 08:01 AM | TrackBack
