"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. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
