Providing Fine-grained Access Control for Java Programs
There is considerable interest in programs that can migrate from one host to another and execute. Mobile programs are appealing because they support efficient utilization of network resources and extensibility of information servers. However, since they cross administrative domains, they have the ability to access and possibly misuse a host’s protected resources. In this paper, we present a novel approach for controlling and protecting a site’s resources. In this approach, a site uses a declarative policy language to specify a set of constraints on accesses to resources. A set of code transformation tools enforces these constraints on mobile programs by integrating the access constraint checking code directly into the mobile program and resource definitions. Because our approach does not require resources to make explicit calls to a reference monitor, it does not depend upon a specific runtime system implementation.
