Introduction to "building reliable secure computing systems out of unreliable insecure components"

J. Dobson, B. Randell
Seventeenth Annual Computer Security Applications Conference  
Parallels are drawn between the problems and techniques associated with achieving high reliability, and those associated with the provision of security, in distributed computing systems. Some limitations of the concept of a Trusted Computing Base are discussed, and an alternative approach to the design of highly secure computing systems is put forward, based on fault tolerance concepts and techniques.
