He selects for execution one or more available application programs. A list of the users authorized to use the terminal (this may be "ALL"). Update of a user's clearance status by the security officer can be done if and only if the user is not logged onto the system. For example, repeated unsuccessful attempts to gain access to the system software or to a file should be promptly reported by the Supervisor software in order to alert system operations personnel and, if necessary, the System Security Officer. In the event the failure persists, it shall be the responsibility of the System Security Officer to take any action indicated. 2). It is recommended that this certification be performed by an agency or a special team not part of the using agency and separate from design or maintenance groups. 2. It is inappropriate to levy security violations against a user for security errors occurring during a debugging phase; but it is dangerous to risk having an agent conceal his activities as debugging errors. The following steps are representative of the procedures necessary to maintain segregation when system status changes. Appropriate remedial action must be taken and verified before the program is returned to operational status. Because systems are vulnerable to security threats posed by operations and maintenance personnel, it is strongly recommended that for systems handling extremely sensitive information all software and hardware maintenance be performed as a joint action of two or more persons. Internal encryption could be applied not only to the primary magnetic core storage, but also to secondary file storage. This Report addresses the most difficult security control situation, a time-sharing system serving geographically distributed users. The user is responsible for observing all designated procedures and for insuring against observation of classified material by persons not cleared for access to it; this includes proper protection of classified hard copy. In part, this reflects the separation of information into special categories, and, in part, the fact that many different agencies are authorized to grant clearances. For the purposes of the computer records, an individual granted (say) a national Top Secret clearance and access to information of Type A is automatically assumed to be cleared for all Type A information through the Top Secret level; this does not imply, however, that he is automatically authorized access to all levels of Type A information. Furthermore, in some cases the presence of special machine instructions whose execution might modify or by-pass security controls, or the existence of an unusual configuration, etc., might require logging of additional activity — e.g, any use of a diagnostic instruction that can lead to subsequent errors because of change-of-mode in the machine. Comment: The Appendix describes a system for implementing a file-access control mechanism. To the maximum extent possible, the procedures for changing the status of the machine should be designed with user convenience in mind. The capability for specifying security parameters as a declaration covering a set of interactions is provided in order that the user not be burdened with specifying security information more often than absolutely necessary. It may also be desirable to keep within the computing system extensive information on each user, not for routine verification of his access privileges, but for the convenience of the System Security Officer when he finds it necessary to intervene in the system's operation. The system designer must be aware of the points of vulnerability, which may be thought of as leakage points, and he must provide adequate mechanisms to counteract both accidental and deliberate events. Due to the speeds of modern computers, the individual user is rarely aware that he is receiving only a fraction of the system's attention or that his job is being fragmented into pieces for processing. Security Parameters. It will depend on the age of the software and hardware, but certainly security control will be cheapest if it is considered in the system architecture prior to hardware and software design. The generation process described below creates the tables used by the system, but does not affect the software or any of its built-in checks. Many of the explanatory comments come from the original paper, although some were added in the final writing. Procedures, regulations, and doctrine for some of these areas are already established within DOD, and are not therefore within the purview of the Task Force. Where tests show that the overall system can effectively maintain the integrity of boundaries between portions of the system, certification may differ for various portions (i.e., for "subsystems"). The computer system will maintain a catalog of all users authorized to have access to it, and for each user will maintain the following information: The computer system will maintain the following information for each file: The system for automating multilevel security classification and control here described is entirely table driven. Each user must be notified of any change in the operational status of the system, whether scheduled or not. The RAND Corporation is a research organization that develops solutions to public policy challenges to help make communities throughout the world safer and more secure, healthier and more prosperous. There also must be provision for orderly shutdown of the system (including such features as automatic logging out of users and access closure to all files of classified information). The recommendations have been framed to provide maximum latitude and freedom of action in adapting the ideas to specific installations. A specific algorithm (or combination of algorithms) for controlling access to all classified information shall be specified and embedded in the system. The actual merge rule processing is as follows: The next step in system generation is Personnel Security Definition. Finally, the illegal terminal might drain off output directed to a legitimate terminal and pass on an error message in its place so as to delay detection. Since it is virtually impossible to determine in every situation whether a computing system is working as designed, it is obvious that a machine not operating properly is not only of doubtful utility, but also poses a grave risk to the security of the information being handled by it. If the sensitivity of the information warrants, audit information should be made available to the System Security Officer, informing him that a user has taken some specified action in establishing or modifying a clearance level, applicable caveats, or labels. Finally, the interactions of the operating personal, especially the console operators, will be considered as user activity and logged. Means shall be provided for the System Security Officer to initiate these checks manually. A detected failure of the protection mechanisms shall cause the system to enter a unique operating mode wherein no information may be transmitted to or accepted from the user community. Entrance to the supervisor state must be hardware controlled. Ideally, the System Security Officer will participate in this certification so that he becomes familiar with the safeguards in the system and with the process and intent of certification in order that he can conduct subsequent certifications. Following are some other points that should be considered. In order to maintain good security control, it is recommended that modification of installed system software currently in operation be done from specifically designated terminals; that system software maintenance personnel be assigned unique access privileges, including authentication words to permit them access to test files, system functions, etc. Appropriate key locks may be needed so that an operator is assured that certain actions have been taken; the action of these locks must be electrically reported. If there is no previous Requirement statement for B. then one must be created. Installation Certification. A possible benefit of internal encryption may be that it reduces the scope of system certification to more manageable proportions. Some level of recertification must be accomplished periodically. It is intended that the general guidelines in this Report be of use to DOD components, other government installations, and contractors. Wiretapping may be employed to steal information from land lines and radio intercept equipment can do the same to microwave links. With respect to language processors and utility programs, very little can be said that will be of assistance in the design and development of secure resource-sharing systems. Identify all hardware elements (such as registers, base address registers, counters, etc.) They may include provision of approved secure cable between the terminal and the central location, or of approved cryptographic equipment. It is also reasonable that, on request, the system provide the user with a listing of labels so that he can assure himself that nothing has been overlooked. On the other hand, it might also be true that the volume of classified and the volume of unclassified work are such that an economic solution might be a separate machine for each part of the workload. At the time of Personnel Security Definition, and at the time of granting an additional clearance to (or removing an existing clearance from) a user, a consistency check is made to insure that the Requirements statement for each of the user's clearances is still satisfied after the addition (deletion) of the new (old) clearance; this is accomplished as follows: Generate the set of access privileges specified by the user's explicit clearances; this can be done as follows: Form the set of all the user's explicit clearances (called the. Comment: The impact of this recommendation on the clearance specified for a remote terminal is complex. The security structure language formally defines a set of relations among entities, including names of clearances or classifications, code words, labels, etc. Because of the complexity of the overall scheme for controlling access to classified in formation, it may be that the full range of security control mechanisms will not be necessary at each installation. This class cannot be inherited. Examination of the software is really an aspect of certification and it is conceivable that, because of the technical expertise implied, examination and testing of software can most efficiently be done by a certifying group. These controls are independent of the system controls, but are necessary for an effective security program. The question of which jobs a user can run in each possible circumstance can become very complex. The Task Force has identified several aspects of secure computer systems which are currently impractical or impossible to assess. This technique may be restricted to taking advantage of system protection inadequacies in order to commit acts that appear accidental but which are disruptive to the system or to its users, or which could result in acquisition of classified information. DAC is the least restrictive compared to the other systems, as it essentially allows an individual complete control over any objects they own, as well as the programs associated with those objects. The first concerns the structure, administration, and mechanism of the national apparatus for granting personnel security clearances. Comment. Definition; Documentation; Return to Secure Architecture Design; Definition. Before a user is given access to a classified file, the user's clearance level, need-to-know, and access privileges must be checked against the access restrictions of that file. A user program seeking access to some portion of the Supervisor must specifically thread its way through the concentric rings until it reaches the desired portion. Security controls are safeguards or countermeasures to avoid, detect, counteract, or minimize security risks to physical property, information, computer systems, or other assets. Similarly, there are instances of interrelated components where it is mandatory that a clearance not mutually coexist with another clearance that implies it (see Example 4 in Annex B). OS security encompasses all preventive-control techniques, which safeguard any computer assets capable of being stolen, edited or deleted if OS security … Candidate, Pardee RAND Graduate School, Assistant Policy Researcher, RAND; Ph.D. The RAND Corporation is a nonprofit institution that helps improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis. FIPS 200 identifies 17 broad control families: National Institute of Standards and Technology, A maturity based framework divided into five functional areas and approximately 100 individual controls in its "core.". For example, one applet in Control Panel lets you configure the mouse pointer size (among other things), while another allows you to adjust all the sound-related settings. A number of problems covered in the preceding discussions are brought together here briefly because of their importance to the system as a whole. A possibility for handling the situation (which, however, may be costly in terms of system efficiency) is as follows. In the event of a failure in the Supervisor software or in the hardware resulting in an operational malfunction, the system must be restarted at the appropriate clearance level by an approved restart procedure as a part of returning it to operational status in the same mode. The security problem with such an open environment is that the system must be able to withstand efforts to penetrate it from both inside and outside. However, it is conceivable that even for System Personnel, access could be segmented so that such clearance would not be absolutely necessary. It is not implied that the extent nature of the tests and inspections necessarily be the same for each of the types of system certification. Strict adherence to the principle of isolation is necessary in order to avoid undesirable or unpredictable side effects in case of failure or malfunction of a particular item in the system. Nearly a decade later the report is still a valuable comprehensive discussion of security controls for resource-sharing computer systems. (historical abbreviation). This Report is concerned directly with only the latter; it is sufficient here to acknowledge that the entire range of issues considered also has a "civil" side to which this work is relevant. In any such conflict between a user program and security controls, but especially in the case of an open system, it may be advisable to interrupt all system operations at the first feasible opportunity and run a security testing program to verify correct functioning of all security controls. An individual designated by an appropriate authority to verify and certify that the security measures of a given computer system and of its operation meet all applicable, current criteria for handling classified information; and to establish the maximum security level at which a system (and each of its parts) can operate. The Security Structure Definition formally defines the structure of that portion of the security classification and control system that is applicable to the particular installation in question. While this could be corrected, the cost, in terms of computer processing, would be prohibitively high, and the first reason makes it unnecessary. Therefore, techniques are required to control access and to securely identify users. The last item is considered relevant in order to permit maximum operational convenience. The U.S. Government Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) originally instituted a control systems security program (CSSP) now the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) Industrial Control Systems, which has made available a large set of free National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards documents regarding control system security. This is a desirable feature, not only from a consideration of system accountability, but also from the point of view of protection for the user. Another, for example, is to bring the System Security Officer into the access control procedure and let him manually verify each user request for access to a given file. It also discusses a scheme whereby the System Security Officer can describe to the computing system that part of the total security structure with which his system must deal, as well as a means for inserting security parameters into the system. The other four specifications of the Security Control Definition are discussed below. The Appendix was first drafted by Arthur A. Bushkin and Willis H. Ware; it was subsequently extended and rewritten by Mr. Bushkin and Robert M. Balzer. Thus, espionage activity is based on exploiting a combination of deficiencies and circumstances. Design Certification. For both purposes, hardware, software, and procedural mechanisms shall be implemented that insure that neither the access control algorithm nor the security-parameter insertion mechanism is circumvented, either accidentally (through component failure) or intentionally. Background information on the file; examples of information that might be desired are: Its downgrading group, and any downgrading actions applied to it; Name of individual who created the file and his agency; Predecessor files (if any) from which the file was created. The computing system shall have the capability of guaranteeing that some specified minimum fraction of its time is spent on performing automatic system checking. All security controls must be implemented in such a way that failure or malfunction is positively and unambiguously transmitted, preferably in a redundant fashion, to the System Security Officer. It, and all CLEARANCES within the component, are listed in the definition. Operational start-up. The policy recommendations that follow are intended to provide a security skeleton around which a specific secure computer system may be built. An individual with a national clearance of Top Secret is authorized access to (say) cryptographic information (i.e., is granted Crypto access) only to the Secret level. VI below, "Information Security Labels." Terms used throughout this Report are defined below as a group; certain other terms (especially computer-related ones) are defined at appropriate places in the text. Sometimes, the hardware features are not necessary in principle, but as a practical matter the use of relevant hardware features greatly simplifies the achievement of isolation. Indicator lights visible to the operator may be needed so that the status of on-line file media is readily discernible. INTERNAL STRUCTURE: CHERRY IMPLIES AGILE, CHERRY IMPLIES BANANA; ACCESS RULES: CHERRY ACCESSES CHICO, AGILE ACCESSES ANN, BANANA ACCESSES BETTY; REQUIREMENTS: AGILE REQUIRES NOT BANANA AND SECRET, BANANA REQUIRES NOT AGILE AND SECRET, CHERRY REQUIRES TOP SECRET. As a consequence, procedural and administrative safeguards must be applied in resource-sharing computer centers to supplement the protection available in the hardware and software. The file backup program can be given the clearance status to handle all files for which it is to provide backup and universal authorization for read-only to enable it to read any of these files. A properly authenticated user is responsible for all action at a given terminal between the time that his identity has been established and verified, and his interaction with the system is terminated and acknowledged. The System Security Officer shall be provided means for establishing what fraction of the time the installed system spends in self-checking and be responsible for controlling the time so spent, depending on the classification and sensitivity of the information that his system is handling. Federal information Processing Standard 200 (FIPS 200), "Minimum Security Requirements for Federal Information and Information Systems", specifies the minimum security controls for federal information systems and the processes by which risk-based selection of security controls occurs. Such failures can involve the coupling of information from one user (or computer program) with that of another user, the "clobbering" of information i.e., rendering files or programs unusable), the defeat or circumvention of security measures, or unintended change in security status of users, files, or terminals. Responsible Authority. Production models of a given design need be tested only to verify that all safeguards are present and properly functioning. The following discussion presents two ways of viewing the physical and operational configurations. Where physical limitations prohibit or discourage presentation of all caveats and labels associated with each separate page or display of information, means must be provided for the user to obtain them at his request. Printers or punchcard equipment must be sanitized by running out blank paper or blank cards; ribbons must be changed or protected. Each user shall be required both to identify himself and to authenticate his identity to the system at any time requested by it, using authentication techniques or devices assigned by the System Security Officer. This policy will accommodate either approach as found to be necessary by the exact nature of the computer system involved and the information to be protected. A change in the mode of operation must be accomplished by recessing or logging off, as appropriate, all active users and forcing a new log-on procedure, including authentication, for the new level. The batches are usually manually organized, and for the most part each individual job is processed to completion in the order in which it was received by the machine. Malfunctions might only disrupt a particular user's files or programs; as such, there might be no risk to security, but there is a serious implication for system reliability and utility. These are the privileges of the System Security Officer and the file-backup mechanism. The solutions the manufacturer designs into the hardware and software must be augmented and refined to provide the additional level of protection demanded of machines functioning in a security environment. The function of this program is to verify that the hardware and software safeguards are operative. Procedures include the insertion of clearance and status information into the security checking mechanisms of the machine system, the methods of authenticating users and of receipting for classified information, the scheduling of computing operations and maintenance periods, the provisions for storing and keeping track of removable storage media, the handling of printed machine output and reports, the monitoring and control of machine-generated records for the security apparatus, and all other functions whose purpose is to insure reliable but unobtrusive operation from a security control viewpoint. For example, according to the time that they act, relative to a security incident: They can also be classified according to their nature, for example: Numerous information security standards promote good security practices and define frameworks or systems to structure the analysis and design for managing information security controls. The system designer must be aware of the totality of potential leakage points in any system in order to create or prescribe techniques and procedures to block entry and exploitation. A secure system must be based on the concept of isolating any given individual from all elements of the system to which he has no need for access. More serious, however, is the fact that operating systems are very large, complex structures, and thus it is impossible to exhaustively test for every conceivable set of conditions that might arise. hours, days). The phrase. It is the responsibility of the Operating System to create a protection system which ensures that a user who is running a particular program is authentic. the system must concurrently check all its internal protection mechanisms. Delete this entry from the clearance set. As much of the Supervisor as possible must run in the user state (as opposed to the supervisor state); each part of the Supervisor should have only as much freedom of the machine as it needs to do its job. In such a computer system. On the other hand, encryption of secondary storage greatly complicates the file management problem. After all Security Component Definitions have been entered into the computer and preprocessing has been completed, two consistency checks are made. A deliberate and covert attempt to (1) obtain information contained in the system, (2) cause the system to operate to the advantage of the threatening party, or (3) manipulate the system so as to render it unreliable or unusable to the legitimate operator. It is conceivable that in some installations it will prove desirable to provide the System Security Officer with a visual display of the system transaction log. In addition, they allow routine handling of two situations normally requiring special provisions. In this case, responsibility for authentication is transferred to the administrative jurisdiction which has cognizance over the terminal. In particular, software safeguards alone are not suffi­ cient. Each user (or specific group of users) shall be administratively designated (identified) to the computer system by the System Administrator, with the concurrence of the System Security Officer. Still, however, there may arise a true emergency (such as an enemy attack) where there is no time to do anything but respond. The issue is considered at this point in connection with policy and operational recommendations, but is also discussed later in the context of hardware recommendations. Comment: As will be seen in the Appendix, which defines a language and schema for identifying both a security structure and security parameters to a computing system, the number of parameters that must be kept within the system for each user will reflect the kind of classified information with which the system deals. Concatenate (i.e., conjunct) all the labels of each file accessed during the merge process (this includes required labels). Represents text that should be kept confidential, such as by deleting it from computer memory when no longer needed. The Pardee RAND Graduate School (PRGS.edu) is the largest public policy Ph.D. program in the nation and the only program based at an independent public policy research organization—the RAND Corporation. Moving through this consistency expression from left to right, pick up the next clearance in the expression and replace it by itself conjuncted with the right-hand side of the Requirements statement for that clearance (from its Security Component Definition), all enclosed in parentheses. Operating Systems generally identifies/authenticates users using following three ways − 1. After the general reliability of a system has been established by operating successfully for a reasonable length of time, a limited recertification process should be performed at appropriate intervals, consisting only of tests and inspections intended to reveal changes surreptitiously made in the system, or to detect inadvertent changes made in the system during maintenance, or to validate the continuing performance of system security controls. In the case where the Supervisor is responsible for data segregation, it must check the authority of terminals that originate traffic, must properly label (internally) all traffic, must label all tasks whose execution is required in order to service a user request, must keep track of all tasks and of the programs that execute them, must validate the security markings (including security flags) on all tasks and control access to files on the basis of the markings, and must validate (by reference to internal tables or files) the authority of a remote location to receive output information with a given security marking or flag. There must be detailed instructions to the system operating personnel for each mode, relative to such things as console actions, online file status, memory-clear procedures, mode shut down, mode initiation, message insertion via the console typewriter, etc. Only the minimum number of system programs should be allowed to execute without any restriction. It involves an examination of the safeguards — hardware, software, procedural, administrative — that have been provided, and. They may be identified by security audits or as a part of projects and continuous improvement. Finally, Part D, on Management and Administrative Control, was written by Willis H. Ware, and utilizes ideas from "Security of Classified Information in the Defense Intelligence Agency's Analyst Support and Research System" (February 1969, C-3663/MS-5), and from "Security Procedures for the RYE System" (W. B. Ellis, December 1968). A possible drawback is the possibility of a malfunction in the encryption device permanently "freezing" the information in an encrypted, impenetrable state. The Report was printed and published by The Rand Corporation, under ARPA sponsorship. Equipment and associated materials (e.g., media containing copies of programs) used for handling classified information must be continuously protected against unauthorized change commensurate with the security level at which they most recently have been certified. We recommend that this area be further explored. Deliberate Penetration. Comment: Identification is for the purposes of system accounting and billing, whereas authentication is the verification procedure necessary before the system can grant access to classified information. Inadvertently a system program can deliberately create either of these two classes of information that is segregated entrusted.
