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