1 shows, we can also put an order on these labels: Top Secret is stricter than Secret, which is stricter than Confidential, and so on. We can now talk clearly about information flow; if we then ensure that, no matter what, information flows only upward in the order, we can be sure that unprivileged subjects can't read sensitive information. 1. This directed graph shows how our example set of clearance levels would be ordered according to sensitivity: n1 n 2 if and only if a directed path exists from n1 to n2.

A subject S can perform an access on an object O only if that access is permitted in the S-O entry of the current access control matrix. Bell and LaPadula then prove a Basic Security Theorem: If we start in a secure state and if each transition abides by some rules derived from the preceding properties, then the system remains in a secure state. ) Bell and LaPadula then attempt to work out the details of how a Multics variant can follow all these rules. However, one starts to wonder how a program can meaningfully embody the *-property.

3. How Do We Quantify the Possible? Technical people often scoff at the process of crafting regulation and law, perhaps because those who craft such things often appear not to have strong technical expertise.
