"Self and Non-Self in UNIX"
Today's seminar will be a brief and informal introduction to the ideas behind self and non-self in computing. Don't worry - this won't be a lecture on philosophy! I will concentrate on how can a notion of "self" for a UNIX process be developed, and how can this be used to detect changes (i.e. "non-self"). Detecting changes is useful in locating misuse attacks and anomalous conditions.
This work was developed at the University of New Mexico under Stephanie Forrest
. This presentation is based on my trip out there last weekend
Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M.
