Abstract: Having reliable security in systems is of the utmost importance. However, the existing framework of writing, distributing and linking against code in the form of libraries and/or modules does a very poor job of keeping track of who has access to what code and who can call what function. The status-quo is insufficient for a variety of reasons. As the amount of code written that represents some kind of a rights-protected entity increases, we need a systematic, easily adopted framework for designating who has access to what code, and under which conditions. While adding access controls to libraries and modules (as well as functions held securely within them), we also give regard to the performance characteristics and ease-ofuse considerations. In this vein, we discuss the design and implementation of a framework (called SecModule) used for generating (and using) libraries under access controls, as well as performance measurements of invoking functions that are held inside the protected library.
