  • This paper develops four related architectural principles which can guide the construction of error-tolerant operating systems. The fundamental principle, system closure, specifies that no action is permissible unless explicitly authorized. The capability based machine is the most efficient known embodiment of this principle: it allows efficient small access domains, multiple domain processes without a privileged mode of operation, and user and system descriptor information protected by the… CONTINUE READING
