Self and Non-Self in UNIX
Feb 16, 1996
AbstractToday'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
