Title (EN) PROCESS-LEVEL DATA SECURITY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE SECURITE DE DONNEES AU NIVEAU DES PROCESSUS
Abstract:
(EN) A process-level data security system for use on a computer includes three primary components: a configuration utility, a file loader, and a file access interceptor. The configuration utility is used to establish a security context for each desired program file. A program having a security context associated therewith, after having been loaded into the computer's memory by the file loader of the invention, can access only limited information on a mass storage device coupled to the computer. The file access interceptor of the invention handles all file requests issued by the program, and permits or rejects such requests according to the security context.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de sécurité de données au niveau des processus, pour utilisation sur ordinateur, qui comprend trois éléments primaires : utilitaire de configuration, chargeur de fichier et intercepteur d'accès aux fichiers. L'utilitaire de configuration établit un contexte de sécurité pour chaque fichier de programmes souhaité. Une fois chargé dans la mémoire de l'ordinateur par le chargeur de fichier considéré, un programme à contexte de sécurité associé peut accéder uniquement à une information limitée sur une mémoire de grande capacité de l'ordinateur. L'intercepteur d'accès aux fichiers traite toutes les demandes de fichier émises par tel ou tel programme et autorise ou rejette les demandes en fonction du contexte de sécurité.
