Design

This section describes our design for integrating the Flask security mechanisms into the Linux networking component. It begins with a discussion of the object classes and permissions defined for the networking component. This is followed by a description of the control requirements for the system calls used to manage and perform network interprocess communication. Finally, the new socket system calls defined for security-aware applications are described.
