Secure Information Flow as Typed Process Behaviour [chapter]

Kohei Honda, Vasco Vasconcelos, Nobuko Yoshida
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a new type discipline for the π-calculus in which secure information flow is guaranteed by static type checking. Secrecy levels are assigned to channels and are controlled by subtyping.  ...  A behavioural notion of types capturing causality of actions plays an essential role for ensuring safe information flow in diverse interactive behaviours, making the calculus powerful enough to embed known  ...  Then we analyse all cases above to conclude that they work when f is linear as well as non-linear.  ...

An Approximate Framework for Flexible Network Flow Screening

Niall M. Adams, Daniel J. Lawson
2014 2014 IEEE Joint Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference  
This is particularly the case when the structures of interest are embodied as summaries of sets of related traffic, essentially behaviour descriptions.  ...  This paper sketches a methodology to provide such capability, in the context of flow data.  ...  This can include devices, edges, port information, local graph structure.  ...

Detection of Sophisticated Network Enabled Threats via a Novel Micro-Proxy Architecture

Andrew Blyth
2014 Journal of Information Security  
Traditional proxy approaches have failed to protect the universe of discourse that a network enabled service can be engaged in as they view all information flows of the same type in a uniform manner.  ...  Introduction Organizations today seek to utilize information technology as part of their business processes.  ...  However such approaches suffer from generating false positive results and the time taken to learn behaviour. • A proxy functions as the man-in-the-middle of an information flow, allowing for the information  ...
